Jussie Smollett drops a new song after his jail release
(WVUE) - Jussie Smollet has left the jail cell and went straight into the studio. The former “Empire” star took to Instagram Friday (April 8) and announced his new single release. The new song addresses his court case.
The single is titled, “Thank You God,” and Jussie sings...“Some people chasing that clout. Just remember this ... this ain’t that situation. You think I’m stupid enough to kill my reputation?”
He continues in the song with, “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.”
Smollett says he donating all the profits from the track to the Rainbow Push Coalition, Secure the Bag Safety, and the Illinois Innocence Project.
A jury found Smollet guilty of 5 of the 6 felony charges against him for lying to the Chicago police about being a victim of a homophobic, racist attack. The judge has sentenced him to 5 months in prison.
On March 16 he was released as he is waiting to get his sentence overturned. He’s been out for 3 weeks now and he’s found the time to put a song together to get his point across to everyone.
Assumingly at a time like this music must be the only way to channel his thoughts right now.
