JAY-Z Wants to Pass a Law to Limit the Use of Rap Lyrics in Criminal Cases

JAY-Z is calling on New York lawmakers to pass legislation that would restrict when rap lyrics can be used as evidence during criminal cases.
In a letter, obtained by Billboard, the Roc Nation mogul urges lawmakers to support Senate Bill S7527, known as “Rap Music on Trial,” which would limit the admissibility of someone’s music in a criminal trial.
In addition to JAY-Z, the letter was signed by others including Meek Mill, Killer Mike, Fat Joe, and Robin Thicke.
The bill, introduced in November, would limit the circumstances in which any form of “creative expression” can be shown as evidence of a crime to a jury. If passed, prosecutors could only present such material to jurors if they can show that an expressive work is “literal, rather than figurative or fictional.”
“This reform is urgently needed,” wrote Alex Spiro, JAY-Z’s attorney, and Erik Nielson, a professor at the University of Richmond. “This tactic effectively denies rap music the status of art and, in the process, gives prosecutors a dangerous advantage in the courtroom: by presenting rap lyrics as rhymed confessions of illegal behavior, they are often able to obtain convictions even when other evidence is lacking.”
The letter cited a study that showed participants viewed violent rap lyrics as far more threatening than violent lyrics from a country song.
“No other fictional form, musical or otherwise, is (mis)used like this in courts,” Spiro and Nielson wrote. “And it should come as no surprise that the overwhelming majority of artists in these cases are young Black and Latino men.”
The legislation is part of a broader legal debate over when prosecutors can or should cite rap lyrics, a practice that can unfairly sway juries and have a disproportionate impact on Black men.
The bill has already passed a committee vote by an 8-4 vote, and now moves one step closer to a vote by the full New York State Senate.

Wiz Khalifa, Rapsody, & Thundercat Pay Tribute to Mac Miller on His 30th Birthday

Mac Miller would have been 30 today.
In honor of the late rapper’s birthday, some of his closest friends and colleagues are celebrating his life and legacy. Rolling Stone has compiled a digital birthday card filled with wishes and memories on what would have been his 30th year.
Wiz Khalifa, who was once signed to the same label as Mac, recalled fond memories of their studio sessions.
“I miss you, man. Today would have been your 30th birthday, you were gone too soon,” wrote Wiz. “I remember our early days back at ID Labs in Pixburgh with E. Dan making legendary music. You were the young homie coming up so fast and representing the Burgh. We’ll never forget you, man. Love you, bro, happy birthday.”
Another one of Mac’s friends and collaborators, Thundercat, revealed the profound impact Mac had on his life.
“I’ve been taking your advice — sitting down and letting it happen, extremely sitting down and letting it happen,” said the bassist. “And goodness, I’m happy that I’ve gotten to know you and spend this time with you because your life changed my life. I hope that wherever you are, you’re still changing people’s lives.”
Rapsody remembered the Pittsburgh MC for his “light, heart, energy, gift, and love of fruit snacks.”
“Man, you kicked a door in for me early and we gon’ continue to carry your legacy through the doors we still walking through,” said Rapsody. “I still don’t like hummus, btw! I know you would’ve had the illest ‘Dirty Thirty’ celebration ever! I love you forever, Malcolm!”
J.I.D celebrated Mac as a “true genius,” as well as a “genuine human being and a friend.”
Olu, one half of EarthGang, said Mac was the “first star” that the group ever collaborated with. “You didn’t ask for anything. You truly appreciated us as people, appreciated our music, and opened up your resources to us as a friend,” he said.
Mac’s mother, Karen Meyers, also shared a sweet photo of her and her son hugging on the beach. She captioned her Instagram Story with a series of red heart emojis.

Mac died of an accidental overdose on Sept. 7, 2018 at the age of 26. His legacy lives on through his music including his sixth and final album Circles, which was released in January 2020. In October, his Faces mixtape was released to streaming services.
