Jussie Smollett has a new song and the judge who caved and released him from jail should be hanging his head in shame. Because in his new song, “Thank You God, Jussie doubles down on his falsehoods.
Smollett continues to claim he is not guilty in the song and takes a swipe at the Chicago police singing, “It’s like they’re hell-bent on not solving the crime.” As part of Smollett’s sentence, he has to pay $120,000 to the city for all the work the police did to try to solve the crime.
He dedicated the song to “the people who kept it real, who kept it true” and said any profits from the song will go to the Rainbow Push Coalition, Secure the Bag Safety and the Illinois Innocence Project.
It’s like they’re hell-bent on not solving the crime
Taking out the elements of race and trans and homophobia that’s straight taking lives
But turn around and act like I’m the one that killed the strides
But I can’t be mad
Take my ego out
Some people searching for fame
Some people chasing that clout
Just remember this
This ain’t that situation
You think I’m stupid enough to kill my reputation?
Just simply to look like a victim like it’s something fun
Y’all better look at someone else, you got the wrong one
Wait, let me rephrase that
Cause the narrative they played
I really “over-stand” the reason why y’all felt betrayed
They had my own people
Thoughts going off the wall
That’s why from L.D. to Don I still got love for y’all
I know we’ll meet again
Talk like real men
Instead of sharing shade in rooms and up on CNN
Thunder’s mad loud
Still I’m pushing through the clouds
All I ever wanted to do was make my people proud
Fame is nothing real, it’s how you make them feel
Celebrity is for the birds, I ain’t no man of steel
