The Video About Young Thug The Powers That Be Pray You Never Watch!

As Young Thug, Gunna and other members of Young Stoner Life face RICO charges, Kevin Liles, co-founder and CEO of 300 Entertainment, and Julie Greenwald, COO of Atlantic Records, have started a petition that goes against the use of rap lyrics as evidence.

The petition is called “Rap Music on Trial: Protect Black Art” and claims that prosecutors across the country have tried to use rap lyrics as evidence in court. They specifically point out how prosecutors in the YSL trial have used this exact same strategy to try to make the case against Gunna and Young Thug. In the petition, Liles writes, “Today in courtrooms across America, Black creativity and artistry is being criminalized. With increasing and troubling frequency, prosecutors are attempting to use rap lyrics as confessions. This practice isn’t just a violation of First Amendment protections for speech and creative expression. It punishes already marginalized communities and silences their stories of family, struggle, survival, and triumph.”

In May, the New York Senate approved the “Rap Music on Trial” bill that limits the use of song lyrics in court. Many rappers including Jay-Z, Meek Mill, Killer Mike and Big Sean have urged the New York Senate to pass the bill because like Liles points out, it “denies rap music the status of art and, in the process, gives prosecutors a dangerous advantage in the courtroom.” #youngthug #gunna #hiphop
