The rap legend is a staple for the Human Rights cause as he recently spearheaded the Peabody Award-winning Kalief Browder Documentary shedding some light on police corruption and injustice. Jay has said that being a voice is strong when it comes to Social Injustice.
“When I started talking with Harvey Weinstein about Kalief’s short life, it made me realize that a documentary series like Time: The Kalief Browder Story could raise our voices and create that collective we need” Jay- Z Tells The Hollywood Reporter.
According to 21 Savages lawyer, the rapper is a victim of his parents deciding to overstay their work visas and is being unlawfully detained based upon incorrect information about prior criminal charges. The UK rapper was in process of obtaining a U Visa that as Jay-Z writes on Facebook was in the works for almost 4 Years.
“The arrest and detention of 21 Savage is an absolute travesty, his U visa petition has been pending for 4 years,” JAY wrote on his Facebook page. “In addition to being a successful recording artist, 21 deserves to be reunited with his children immediately, #Free21Savage.”
