Yesterday (August 4th) a judge in Russia found WNBA star Brittney Griner guilty of illegally carrying drugs after she was found with a weed pen. She was sentenced to 9 years in jail.
Hip Hop artists have reacted to the news. Boosie Badazz posted a video on IG Live, saying, “How the hell this girl get nine years for a weed pen? And the USA ain’t doing nothing about it. You tell me that! If that was Taylor Swift, there’d be a peace treaty right now. They’d be drafting to go to war. For a weed pen! Nine years… “What that show for Black women in the United States? And the Vice-President as a Black woman, you supposed to be on the frontline to get that Black woman out of jail! Nine damn years. Y’all f*cked up in this world!”
50 Cent also reacted, saying, “This is wild, smh. You don’t ever want to get caught up in the politics, They are gonna tell her like 10 years for a vape pin watch.”
Meek Mill tweeted, “Free BG!!! Let's fight for her!!!”
