Jay-Z has just won a MAJOR victory when a bill he backed in the New York Senate passed!
The bill, known as the “Rap Music on Trial” bill restricts when prosecutors can cite rap lyrics as evidence during criminal cases. The bill also garnered support from Fat Joe, Meek Mill and others!
This bill definitely would’ve assisted Young Thug and Gunna, both of whom are facing RICO charges. The prosecutors in their case are using song lyrics as evidence. The bill must next pass the Senate assembly before becoming a law.
