Pusha T dropped new song "Coming Home" with Lauryn Hill overnight and it has emerged that the track is more than just an exercise in two icons working together. The song was released to mark the launch of his involvement in the Third Strike Coming Home campaign, designed to free people serving life in prison under the three-strikes drug law.
The law, introduced in 1994 by then-President Bill Clinton, states that anyone with a severe violent felony and two other previous convictions is liable to serve a mandatory life sentence in prison.
"This is way more than a song, it’s a movement!" Push tweeted after "Coming Home" dropped. "We are doing everything in our power to bring home men and women trapped behind the wall due to an outdated 3 strikes drug law."
