Industry heavyweight, J. Prince, has added his support to Yo Gotti and Roc Nation's current lawsuit against the state of Mississippi, charging them with undermining the fundamental human rights of prison inmates.
"I had an opportunity to speak with Jay Z, Yo Gotti, and Mysonne last week. And I assured them that they weren't by themselves in the fight against Parchman Prison in Mississippi," J. Prince wrote via Instagram.
"I request everybody that's somebody ride and support this movement against the humanitarian crisis that's taking place at Parchman Prison in Mississippi. Let's find out who the private investors are at this prison and don't be surprised if they are the grand kids of the Klu Klux Klan. Mob Ties, let's stand up and represent around the world. I'm going to Mississippi soon. To be continued..."
Gotti and Roc Nation officially filed the lawsuit a week ago:
The federal lawsuit alleges inmates are being kept in unconstitutional and inhumane conditions.
"Plaintiffs' lives are in peril," the lawsuit begins. "Individuals held in Mississippi's prisons are dying because Mississippi has failed to fund its prisons, resulting in prisons where violence reigns because prisons are understaffed." In the past two weeks alone, five men incarcerated in Mississippi have died as the result of prison violence. These deaths are a direct result of Mississippi's utter disregard for the people it has incarcerated and their constitutional rights."
