Yo Gotti + JAY-Z Threaten Legal Action Over Inhuman Mississippi Prison Conditions

Yo Gotti

Memphis rapper Yo Gotti and JAY-Z are taking prison reform extra serious in 2020. The hip-hop pair are reportedly demanding the governor of Mississippi to make changes to its prisons.

Big Facts: According to reports, Gotti and JAY’s Roc Nation have directly reached out and threatened legal action if changes aren’t immediately made.

On the heels of 5 inmates getting killed in 3 different MS prisons … Gotti’s called on Team Roc — the philanthropic arm of Roc Nation — and it fired off a letter Thursday to Gov. Phil Bryant. In the letter, they make it clear they’ll take legal action if Bryant doesn’t take steps to improve prison conditions. Gotti’s pissed off because 2 of the deaths went down at the prison known as Parchman Farm … not far from his hometown of Memphis. Gotti says the prison conditions are “absolutely inhumane and unconstitutional.” (TMZ)

High-Key Details: This week, Gotti released a statement addressing his and the Roc’s letter.

“The conditions in the prisons operated by the Mississippi Department of Corrections are absolutely inhumane and unconstitutional. To see this happen so close to my hometown of Memphis is truly devastating. That’s why we’re calling on Mississippi state leaders to take immediate action and rectify this issue. If they don’t right this wrong, we’re prepared to take legal action to provide relief for those that are incarcerated and their families.” (Statement)

Wait, There’s More: The situation has even sparked support from New York rapper Mysonne.

Before You Go: Last week, UGK’s Bun B spoke out on one of the Mississippi prisons forcing inmates into inhumane conditions.

Ex Philly Cop Files Defamation Lawsuit Against Meek Mill, JAY-Z Over ‘Free Meek’ Documentary

Meek Mill had an amazing year in 2019. Although he didn’t release much music, he made huge strides in prison reform and his personal case.

He was finally off of probation after getting a new judge and trial for his decade old case.The Philly emcee released the Free Meek project through Amazon documenting his struggles with the prison system.

But everyone didn’t view this moment as a W. Former Philadelphia police officer, Saqueta Williams, appeared in the doc on the Philly’s “Do Not Call” list. The list was compiled of 60 crooked cops who the District Attorney avoids calling due to their tainted credibility.

The list was described as unofficial and “names more than 60 cops whom the district attorney’s office avoids summoning to testify in court, due to credibility issues,” the lawsuit states. Williams argues that the inclusion of her name and photo is defamation and she wants money for the damages.

Williams was arrested for firing her gun during an off-duty altercation but was later acquitted. “It lends the impression to the ordinary person that she was a corrupt police officer. That she had lied or perjured herself, which is not true,” said Williams’ lawyer, Steven F. Marino. “That’s the foundation of the suit.”

Williams is the only officer on the list who is taking legal action against Meek Mill, JAY-Z, and Wenner Media.

National Law Enforcement Day: Here’s 5 Hip-Hop Classics Aimed At The Police

Cops Shot The Kid Video

Today is officially National Law Enforcement Day but the hip-hop community is staying extra quiet. In celebration of the annual event, SOHH‘s put together five hip-hop classics aimed directly at the boys in blue.

1 – N.W.A.’s “F**k Tha Police”

If there’s one song that speaks directly to law enforcement, look no further than N.W.A.’s standout classic addressing their issues with cops’ aggression toward the black community.

2 – KRS-One’s “Sound of da Police”

Rap pioneer KRS-One doesn’t mince words when it comes toward the cops. On this record, the “Teacher” compares law enforcement to an overseer of field slaves.

3 – Nas’ “Cops Shot The Kid

In 2018, New York rap veteran Nas reminded everyone why Colin Kaepernick kneels – police brutality is still alive and “Cops Shot The Kid” serves as a constant reminder.

4 – JAY-Z’s “99 Problems

JAY-Z put everyone up on game about his encounter with law enforcement for giving 55 in a 54 and also reminded listeners to keep the glove compartment locked and the trunk in the back.

5 – Lil Wayne’s “Mrs. Officer”

Not everything has to be negative, right? Fortunately, Lil Wayne used his “Mrs. Officer” banger to let people know a little love could come as a result of being around the cops.

JAY-Z and Beyoncé Bring Ace of Spades to Golden Globes

You can’t sit Moët in front of JAY-Z. The Carters hit the Golden Globes on Sunday night and were spotted being flanked by a bodyguard who had two bottles of Armand de Brignac with him.

The Globes are a Moët & Chandon-sponsored event, but that doesn’t mean anything to Hip-Hop’s number one couple.

Beyonce was nominated for Best Original Song for “Spirit” from the Lion King soundtrack. The award was taken home by Elton John and Bernie Taupin for “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again” from the ROcketman soundtrack.

Jon B Admits to Being Attracted to 16-Year-Old Beyonce

Jon B is under fire for comments he made about a then-16-year-old Beyonce in a resurfaced interview.

“My first major tour was with Destiny’s Child as the opening act for me and Jagged Edge as the opening act,” he said. “So, we’re all labelmates and we’re all going to the radio stations to promote our records together all as a unit. I love that, because we don’t do that anymore. You think about it, it was Beyonce in the beginning of her career, so I was looking at a little 16, 17-year-old Beyoncé just like [wide-eyed and mouth open],” he said as he laughed.

He continued laughing knowing how crazy it sounded. . “I’m sorry but…’cause I’m a grown man at the time, it’s kinda wrong, but you know. You already know,” he added with a finger point. “It was awesome to be able to like, come up on the side of the stage while they’re performing, Destiny’s Child was doing the…back then it was ‘Bills, Bills, Bills’ and all these records and just watching them do their thing then come off the stage and be like ‘Yay, that was really good. Kill it Jon!’ Beyoncé telling me to kill it. That’d be huge now. If I could open up for Beyoncé now. Switch it around. It’s definitely something fun to look back at.”

The Beyhive was upset that Jon B openly admitted to being attracted to a minor, especially since Matthew Knowles claimed Jagged Edge sexually harassed his daughter and Kelly Rowland.

A lot of people think he shared TMI in the interview, meanwhile, others argued that she was an attractive young lady. What are your thoughts?

Busta Rhymes Dr. Dre

Music moguls Dr. Dre, Diddy, Beyoncé and JAY-Z have all had a financially successful decade. The foursome have landed on Forbes’ highest paid musicians of the past 10 years.

Dre toppled the competition with nearly $1 billion mostly because of his Beats By Dre franchise.

Dr. Dre ($950 million) The superproducer released one album this decade and barely toured, but had music’s top business achievement: Apple’s $3B buyout of Beats. Taylor Swift ($825 million) Beyoncé ($685 million) Queen Bey began the decade newly graduated from Destiny’s Child, quickly establishing her business bona fides in the studio and on the road. U2 ($675 million) Diddy ($605 million) He’s had more name changes than anyone on the list, but his earnings remained strong thanks mostly to his Ciroc vodka pact with Diageo. (Forbes)
