Jay-Z, along with Meek Mill, Big Sean, Fat Joe, Yo Gotti, and Killer Mike are in support of a new, New York State law that would prevent prosecutors from using song lyrics in court as evidence of alleged crimes. It’s not just rappers who are pushing for the new legislation, singers Kelly Rowland and Robin Thicke have also joined the cause. The artists have sent a letter to the New York Governor in support of the bill “Rap Music on Trial.” Earlier this week, the bill was moved forward by the Senate Codes Committee, so we’ll see what happens. Artists should be free to make their art without fear that it "can and will" be used against them in court.
