Jay-Z, Yo Gotti, And Roc Nation Take On Mississippi Prisons For Inmates
(AllHipHop News) Jay-Z, Yo Gotti, and Roc Nation are all about that action.
The rap stars have filed a class-action lawsuit against the MS Department of Corrections over its horrendous treatment of the inmates.
The rappers are targeting Commissioner Nathan Burl Cain and the prison's healthcare provider, Centurion for running a "medieval" style prison.
The new class-action lawsuit represents 227 inmates at the Mississippi State Penitentiary at Parchman.
The lawsuit claims the prison is a disaster. The rapper's claim the facility is understaffed, filthy, and violent.
For the past year, the rap bosses have been accusing the MS Department of Corrections of failing "to meet even the most basic human rights" over the filthy conditions at the Mississippi State Penitentiary at Parchman.
There have been nine inmate deaths in Parchman as a result of suicides, homicides, and miscellaneous cases.
