Jussie Smollett releases song about people thinking he’s a clout-chaser who wants to kill his own reputation, after recent release from jail, where he appealed his sentencing

Jussie Smollett releases “Thank You God” song 

Last month, Jussie Smollett was sentenced to 30 months of felony probation, which included 150 days in jail. This was for lying to police in Chicago in January 2019, after staging his own hate crime, after originally claiming he was a victim of  racist and homophobic attack. Smollett was found guilty on five of six felony counts.

Smollett went on to appeal the sentence last month, and was released several days later. That came after he was placed in a psych ward of the jail, but was able to get out of that area. That was also a jail area where celebrities were placed.

Now, Smollett is definitely doing his best to enjoy his freedom, and subliminally speak on the criticism against him. On Friday, he posted a new song titled “Thank You God,” where he denied being a clout-chaser and killing his own reputation. The actor also added that race and homophobia are factors in his case.

“Some people chasing that clout / Just remember this … this ain’t that situation / You think I’m stupid enough to kill my reputation? It’s like they’re hell-bent on not solving the crime / Taking out the elements of race and trans and homophobia that’s straight taking lives / But turn around and act like I’m the one that killed the strides.”

Smollett will also be donating proceeds of Thank You God to the Rainbow Push Coalition, Secure the Bag Safety and the Illinois Innocence Project.
