Kaalan Walker, a Los Angeles rapper who appeared in the 2018 film Superfly, has been sentenced to 50 years to life in prison after he was convicted on multiple rape counts.
A Los Angeles Superior Court judge handed down the sentence on Monday, Oct. 17, and ordered Walker, 27, to register as a sex offender, NBC Los Angeles reported.
In April, a jury convicted Walker of raping six victims and sexually assaulting a seventh between 2013 and 2018 — some as young as 16 years old. All of the women were aspiring models.
Prosecutors said Walker used Instagram and Twitter to connect with his victims by booking them for fake photo and music video shoots.

The LAPD announced his arrest in September 2018.
During his trial, the prosecution said Walker told some of the victims he would introduce them to celebrities and claimed to know Drake.
His attorney, Andrew Flier, insisted his client was innocent of the charges and the women voluntarily met up with Walker.
The rapper goes by the stage name KR and released an album in 2017. In addition to a role in Superfly, he appeared in the 2017 movie Kings, alongside Daniel Craig and Halle Berry. In 2018, he had a small part in the BET series In Contempt.
