Jussie Smollett Declares Innocence In New Song ‘Thank You God’

Jussie Smollett is a free man, but he is not letting up on everybody who doubted him through the course of his trial! As we previously reported, Jussie was found guilty of staging a hate crime on himself and making a false report to the police in March. Despite his conviction, Jussie has maintained his innocence and is continuing to do so in his music.

Smollett released a nearly six minute long R&B song called “Thank You God…” on Friday, in which he doubled down on the fact that he was harmed in a homophobic and racially charged attack almost three years ago.

“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,” Jussie rapped in the song.

“I can’t be mad. Take my ego out. Some people searching for fame. Some people searching for fame. Some people chasing that clout. Just remember this, this ain’t that situation. You think I’m stupid enough to kill my reputation?”

He continued saying, “All I ever wanted to do was make my people proud. Fame is nothing real, it’s how you make them feel. Celebrity is for the birds, I ain’t no man of steel.”

Jussie revealed that the profits made from the song will be donated to the Rainbow Push Coalition, STB Safety and the Illinois Innocence Project, which is reportedly run by his family .

Jussie Smollett was released from jail on $150,000 bond as lawyers argue that his trial was unconstitutional.
