Jay-Z, Yo Gotti Help Another 150 Inmates Sue Mississippi Prison

Jay-Z and Yo Gotti are now taking the next step to ensure that inmates at the Mississippi State Penitentiary at Parchman are being treated humanely. In a second lawsuit against the Mississippi Department of Corrections, Roc Nation is now suing on behalf of another 152 inmates, requesting that the "barbaric" conditions at the Mississippi State Penitentiary are fixed immediately. A full plan to eliminate the health and safety risks for inmates within 90 days is also being requested.
The new lawsuit details some of the horrible conditions at the facility, “Many times, the food is adulterated with rat feces, cockroaches, rocks, bird droppings, and other foreign matter," the suit reads. "The toilets routinely back up and flood the prison cells, which allows fecal matter, urine and water to cover the floors and drain out into the housing unit’s common space…the portable water system at Parchman is contaminated with human feces, presumably from the sewer system. Prisoner-on-prisoner violence is rampant, and, at times, is facilitated by corrupt guards seeking to curry favor with inmates."
