Laura Dale, a deputy United States marshal in Dallas, said Tay-K absconded from house arrest in late March, just before a court hearing in Tarrant County, Tex., in which a judge was to decide whether he would be tried for murder as an adult. (The Tarrant County sheriff’s office, citing Tay-K’s status as a minor, declined to comment on the case.)

M. Trent Loftin, a lawyer for the rapper, confirmed that his client had been charged, along with six others, in connection with a home invasion that left a 21-year-old man dead in July 2016, when Tay-K was 16; Tay-K had been released from custody pending the hearing and was wearing an ankle monitor. But on March 27, Tay-K wrote derisively about his house arrest in a tweet, adding “they gn hav 2 catch me.” The United States Marshals Service soon marked him a “violent fugitive.”

Ezra Averill, 16, who met Tay-K as a high school freshman in Arlington and works as his manager, said in an interview that in the weeks that followed, he would receive new music from Tay-K, including “The Race,” sent from random email addresses. (The catchy instrumental, Mr. Averill said, was sourced from the producer S.Diesel, who had listed it on SoundCloud as a “Pi’erre Bourne x Playboi Carti type beat,” indicating its similarity to the rising Atlanta artists.)

A video for the track was shot in late May, according to social media posts from the directors, as internet buzz around the rapper — who had already gained a small but fervent local and online following with singles and shows around the Dallas area — grew. “We hadn’t planned on dropping ‘The Race’ for a while,” Mr. Averill said, “but when I saw that he was blowing up on Twitter, I was like, I just have to drop this.”

On June 30, the video had its premiere on the popular YouTube channel for Buffet Boys, a Los Angeles-via-Miami rap collective. “FEDS CANT HOLD ME BACK,” read the accompanying message on Tay-K’s Twitter account. “HERE IT GO.”

That same night, the Marshals Service announced that it had arrested Tay-K in Elizabeth, N.J., citing “dozens of tips” that had “poured in from the entire country.”

While evading authorities, the teenager had also become a suspect in a San Antonio murder that occurred after he fled house arrest, according to The Fort Worth Star-Telegram, as well as in the May assault and robbery of a 65-year-old man in an Arlington park. (Mr. Loftin said that Tay-K had not been served with any papers regarding the second murder and that his client maintained his innocence in the other cases.)

As Tay-K was extradited back to Tarrant County, and eventually moved to an adult jail, the song was already off and running. Mr. Averill and his management partner Adrian Blue, 22, said that in less than two months, Tay-K has gone from 3,000 to about 200,000 followers on Instagram. “The best part about it is it’s all natural — we didn’t force anything,” Mr. Averill said, adding that the team had brought on an entertainment lawyer, James McMillan, and is in discussions with record labels and music publishers whose backing could potentially help with legal fees.

And while Mr. Averill acknowledged that the combination of the song’s content and the real-world story had brought the hype “to a crescendo,” he stressed that Tay-K is “a professional artist — everything’s entertainment.”

Mr. McMillan, who also worked as an entertainment lawyer for Kodak Black, another young rapper whose career has been affected by ongoing legal issues, said that Tay-K “has this dire situation on his back, but this opportunity on the other hand. I’m tasked with trying to make sure we maximize his opportunities so he can mount as strong of a criminal defense as possible.”

Still, it may be impossible for Tay-K to fully unwind his music career from outside factors. His hit single and official mixtape, “#SantanaWorld,” released July 18, are rife with allusions to his own legal status and those of his collaborators in the group Daytona Boyz. The titular Santana, a.k.a. Santana Sage (born Eric Johnson), was sentenced earlier this month to 44 years in prison for the 2016 shooting death of a Texas college student after a New Year’s party; Tay-K, witnesses said, was a back-seat passenger during the shooting, along with the rapper Jalen Bell, who goes by PimpyZ and is currently being held in Tarrant County on his own capital murder charge.

In a jailhouse interview with Say Cheese TV, Tay-K put his odds at being released around 65 percent. “If I do get out, I know I’m done robbing,” he said.

Mr. Loftin said that a preliminary certification hearing to decide upon Tay-K’s status as a juvenile has been scheduled for Aug. 30. “He is ready for his day in court,” the lawyer said, adding that his client was “upbeat and in good spirits” during a visit last week. “Since Day 1, Mr. McIntyre has cooperated with law enforcement entities and maintained his innocence. We feel confident when all of the evidence is reviewed, Mr. McIntyre will be exonerated of all of the charges.”

"Naa na na, la da na nah, nuh nuh hmmm, la la, da da" - these are not the lyrics to Auld Lang Syne, but that won't stop thousands of us from singing it like this.

The Scottish poem is sung by people all around the world in the first minute of New Year's Day, or on Burns Night.

The poem was written by Scottish poet Robert Burns in 1788 and set to the tune of a traditional folk song.

It's used to bid farewell to the old, whether that be the year, loved ones at funerals or even school as it's also sung at graduations.

The translation doesn't make a great deal of sense, but if you change "auld lang syne" to a less literal meaning of "long ago" to something along the lines of "old times" or "good old times", then it begins to make a bit more sense.

So what are the actual lyrics to the song?

Well, here are the lyrics to the first verse and chorus, and you can click the button underneath the image to translate it into modern English.

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,

and days of auld lang syne?


For auld lang syne, my jo,

for auld lang syne,

we’ll tak' a cup o’ kindness yet,

for auld lang syne.

And surely ye’ll be your pint-stoup!

and surely I’ll be mine!

And we’ll tak' a cup o’ kindness yet,

for auld lang syne.


We twa hae run about the braes,

and pou’d the gowans fine;

But we’ve wander’d mony a weary fit,

sin' auld lang syne.


We twa hae paidl’d in the burn,

frae morning sun till dine;

But seas between us braid hae roar’d

sin' auld lang syne.


And there’s a hand, my trusty fiere!

and gie's a hand o’ thine!

And we’ll tak' a right gude-willie waught,

for auld lang syne.


And if you're not feeling very adventurous on this New Year's, then below you can find a full modern English translation (for shame).

Full lyrics (English):

Should old acquaintance be forgot,

and never brought to mind?

Should old acquaintance be forgot,

and days of long ago?


For days of long ago, my dear,

for days of long ago,

we'll take a cup of kindness yet,

for days of long ago.

And surely you’ll buy your pint cup!

and surely I’ll buy mine!

And we'll take a cup o’ kindness yet,

for days of long ago.


We two have run about the slopes,

and picked the daisies fine;

But we’ve wandered many a weary foot,

since days of long ago.


We two have paddled in the stream,

from morning sun till dine;

But seas between us broad have roared

since days of long ago.


And there’s a hand my trusty friend!

And give me a hand o’ thine!

And we’ll take a right good-will draught,

for days of long ago.


Happy New Year from the Mirror!
