(AllHipHop News) Is Ray J following in the footsteps of his ex-girlfriend Kim Kardashian West? According to reports, Ray is looking to work with the Trump Administration to help free someone from prison.
The person seeking clemency from the president is said to be Suge Knight. The former Death Row Records CEO is serving a 28-year prison sentence after pleading no contest to voluntary manslaughter for killing his friend Terry Carter in a hit-and-run case.
Kardashian has become one of the celebrity faces of criminal justice reform. She worked with Trump officials to get nonviolent inmates or people with questionable convictions released from federal prison.
"Ray J is very competitive and always has been. He saw what Kim was able to do with her work in the criminal justice system with the Trump administration and he is determined to show he can do the same," a source told DailyMail. "He's adamant that he can convince Trump to pardon Suge and that people will respect him for doing so."
Ray J also reportedly stepped up to take over control of Death Row. There were rumors that Knight turned over his life rights to the Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood cast member, but Nick Cannon is supposedly the one writing a book about the West Coast legend.
