A SHOCKING video which appears to show a mum rapping about the killing of her son has emerged after the baby’s dad was jailed for shaking him to death.
Ricky Walker, 27, shook Kayden Walker at his home in Bilston, West Midlands, which resulted in the tragic baby suffering ‘catastrophic’ brain injuries.

Walker was yesterday convicted of manslaughter but cleared of murder and child cruelty after telling jurors he believed a folded-up hoodie he used to “prop-feed” Kayden may have suffocated him.
A jury at Birmingham Crown Court also convicted Kayden’s mother, 25-year-old Laura Davies, of allowing the baby’s death.
Laura allegedly appeared in a Facebook livestream on June 30, the day after she and Walker went on trial at Birmingham Crown Court.
The woman identified as Davies changes the lyrics of a drum and bass song to the words: “I ain’t no killer it’s the f****** father.”
The disturbing clip said to show Davies, from Bilston, West Midlands, was streamed live by an account with the name Colleen Lila McCarthy into a closed Facebook group.

The clip begins with three women sitting in chairs outside on a concrete slabbed area.
A woman with bright red hair and drinking from a can is the one claimed to be Laura Davies.
The rowdy women can be heard shouting “F*** the haters” repeatedly as they laugh.
The women begin to play music and dance around to the beat as the woman streaming the video moves the camera around.
They are playing the song “Drum and Bass Father” by Devilman ft Badness.
As the song starts, one woman looks at the woman identified as Davies and says: “I ain’t no killer it’s the f****** father.”
The red-headed woman herself then looks at the camera, throws up her arms and raps: “I ain’t no killer it’s the f****** father.”
During the clip, furious social media users comments on the live stream can be seen.
One wrote: “Should be ashamed of herself.”
Another added: “Erggh. Actually makes me sick.”

Their trial heard allegations that Kayden was subjected to cruelty which led to an earlier head injury, several weeks before his death on June 12, 2016.
The infant went into cardiac arrest at his home and was pronounced dead in hospital about an hour after Walker dialled 999.
Opening the Crown’s case at the start of the trial, prosecutor David Mason QC, alleged that Walker had previously joked about how long it would take his son to suffocate when a hoodie covered his face.
David Mason QC, prosecuting, said Walker had “vigorously” shaken Kayden which caused a severe “bang” to the head on June 12, 2016.
He told the court: “The evidence in this case will show that, just before Kayden’s collapse and that call to the emergency services, he was almost certainly the victim of an episode of forceful shaking, involving an impact to the head.”
Walker, who had a small level of cannabis in his blood at the time of the death, told his trial he could be “heavy-handed” but denied fatally shaking the child.
Explaining why Davies, who was not present when Kayden collapsed, had been charged with allowing death, Mr Mason told the court: “Our case is that there had been an earlier incident of trauma to Kayden and both his mother and father would have been aware of it.
