Jussie Smollett served six days of his 150-day sentencing before the Smollett family posted a whopping $150,000 individual bond for his release. Since the release, his attorneys have been in talks with higher courts to overturn his conviction. As of Friday, Jussie has further taken matters into his own hands to clear his name and this time with the tune of new music.
Jussie Smollett released a new single titled “Thank You God…”. The single dropped nearly a month apart from his pre-trial release from Cook County Jail for allegedly staging a crime outside of his apartment in Chicago. The nearly six minute track features Jussie rapping and singing over a downtempo gospel beat, with lyrics that discuss the trial that he labels as injustice.
It’s like they’re hell-bent on not solving the crime / Taking out the elements of race and trans and homophobia that’s straight taking lives / But turn around and act like I’m the one that killed the strides.
Some people chasing that clout / Just remember this / this ain’t that situation / You think I’m stupid enough to kill my reputation?
Jussie proclaims that his innocence in the case is real, he even shout outs CNN’s Don Lemon for supporting him. Jussie also doubles down on his commitment on doing the right thing by sending all the proceeds of the song’s profits to charities Rainbow Push Coalition, Secure The Bag Safety and the Illinois Innocence Project. Who knows where the Jussie Smollett case will go to next.
