King Push weighs in on mandatory minimum sentencing.

December 20, 2016

Pusha T appears here in a new PSA advocating against mandatory minimum sentencing. The short video, made in collaboration with ECCO and Fictionless, finds King Push reciting the words of Norman Brown, a former inmate who spent 25 years in prison based on mandatory minimum sentencing, but was eventually released after being pardoned by President Obama in 2015.

"When the judge gave me a life sentence, I had to ask myself," Pusha narrates, "was I ever going home again?" The video, created as part of Fictionless' MySentence campaign, is just one of many times this year Pusha has come out as a vocal advocate of criminal justice reform.

Earlier this year, he appeared on the campaign trail with Tim Kaine to talk about the issue and sat down with 13th director Ava Duvernay for Complex to talk about mass incarceration.
