Jay-Z's Team Roc and Yo Gotti Threaten to Sue Mississippi over the State's Prison Conditions

Jay-Z's Team Roc and Yo Gotti intend to sue the state of Mississippi over its "inhumane" prison conditions. This comes after news of constant bloodshed in its prisons.

After news of 5 inmates getting killed in 3 different Mississippi prisons came to light, Gotti decided to hire Team Roc, the philanthropic arm of Roc Nation, to send a letter to Governor Phil Bryant to improve prison conditions. 

To add gravity to their demand, they threatened to take legal action if Bryant does not improve prison conditions. 

Jay-Z's latest philanthropical work comes after he put his music back on Spotify, the rival of his own streaming service, Tidal.

PRISON VIOLENCE IN MISSISSIPPI

Prison violence in the state has spiked in the last ten days, including riots and escapes which led to deaths. In some penitentiaries, it was revealed that gangs have taken over, especially in understaffed and underfunded prisons. 

In the letter to Governor Bryant, it was revealed that the inmates, both male and female, are forced to live with rats as they sleep on the floor, as they were denied mattresses. To them, their cruel and unusual punishment is a violation of the eighth amendment. 

GIVING THE GOVERNMENT A DEADLINE

The organization gave the governor until the weekend to improve situations in the prisons, and if it doesn't, they revealed their attorney will be filing a civil rights lawsuit against the state. 

Jay-Z's latest philanthropical work comes after he put his music back on Spotify, the rival of his own streaming service, Tidal. This came as an early Christmas gift for his fans who were happy with the move.

A CHRISTMAS GIFT TO HIS FANS

In celebration of his 50th birthday last December 4, he decided to give his fans a gift, which came in the form of putting back his music on Spotify. 

This came as a surprise to many, as the Swedish music streaming provider is a rival of his own streaming service, Tidal. However, it is the most popular audio streaming platform and is something millions of his fans use. 

Spotify made sure to announce the good news on their social media accounts, much to the happiness of his fans.
