Hip-hop Icon Jay Z using his Legendary status to shed light on a failed justice system, That has brought great tragedy to the Browder family and so many other families across the nation. Recently Hov inked a deal with The Weinstein Company led by former Miramax Co-founders Bob & Harvey Weinstein.”Kalief Browder” was just 16 years old when he was arrested and charged with stealing a backpack in 2010. Shortly after incarcerated on robbery charges awaiting trial for three years on Rikers Island including two years in solitary confinement. During this time he was beaten daily by fellow inmates & mocked by correctional officers. He was later released in 2013 after his Slept on case was dismissed. Unfortunately two years after bein released he took his own life in suicide.
Jay Z States “(We want to show) that this young man got dealt a horrible hand in the way it happened, and (we hope) that his story and his life inspires others and saves other lives,” “I think it’s very clear solitary confinement for a 16-year-old is wrong to every single person in here. It’s inhumane.”
