Fans are curious whether rapper Kay Flock is still in jail after murdering a man.
In August 2021, Kay Flock splashed with the single “Being Honest.” A few months later, G Herbo collaborated with him on a remix of the popular song. On Kay Flock’s debut album, The D.O.A. Tape, released in November by Capitol Records, both versions of “Being Honest” are present.
According to his lawyer Scott E. Leemon, Kay Flock was arrested on December 23, 2021, on a charge of first-degree murder. The Daily News reports that a 24-year-old man was shot and killed in Manhattan on December 16 by Kay Flock, a 19-year-old born Kevin Perez.
Is Kay Flock In Jail Now?
As he awaits trial, Kay Flock is still in jail on first-degree murder charges. He hinted at his potential release on Wednesday when he posted a video of the jail’s exterior.
Following that, he posted a photo of himself wearing an Amiri outfit along with the message, “All is good, don’t believe the internet, everything trendy.” This comes after it was revealed that Kay Flock had retained Jeffrey Lichtman, a former attorney for El Chapo.

Who Did Kay Flock Kill?
Before Christmas, Kay Flock, an aspiring 18-year-old New York City drill rapper, was imprisoned on suspicion of fatally shooting Oscar Hernandez, 24, on December 16 outside a Harlem barbershop.
When Perez walked by, Hernandez was seated in a barber’s chair. Perez then asked the victim what he was looking at after opening the door.
Perez walked away as Hernandez continued to argue with him outside, according to the Police. According to Police, Perez shot himself in the neck and chest to end the argument.
According to a criminal complaint, a Police officer from the 48th Precinct in the Bronx, where Perez resides, recognized him after seeing the scene on surveillance footage.
According to surveillance footage, the situation was much more complicated, and Flock wasn’t the aggressor. According to Police sources, Hernandez belonged to the Thirdside Gang, which has its headquarters in the Bronx, and investigators think the shooting was gang-related.
Kay Flock Arrest And Charges
According to online court documents obtained by Pitchfork, Kay Flock has been accused of murder as well as two felonies related to criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree.
The first court appearance was on January 4, and the next was scheduled for February 10.
The victim’s male relative stated that his family was preparing to attend his funeral. The relative responded, “If it’s the right guy, yeah, Justice must be carried out.” when asked if the arrest had brought the family peace.
In a promise to “fight to the death” for the rapper, Kay Flock’s attorney claims that his client shot a man last year in “self-defense.” According to the lawyer, Kay Flock took his gun out and killed him at that point. He asserts that the victim was holding a loaded gun in his pocket at the time of the incident.
The lawyer claimed that his client was put in a hopeless predicament. “Someone is approaching you with a loaded gun, and it’s obvious that he intends to use it. He also has a long criminal history. Do you want a shot, or do you want to avoid getting one?
He revealed that Flock could receive a life sentence.
