Yo Gotti and Jay-Z have reportedly followed through on their promise to sue Mississippi officials, after they have failed to better the conditions addressed in a January 9th letter to the governor's office and Hall. In the letter sent by Roc Nation, they wrote if "immediate steps" weren't taken to address the problem, they were "prepared to pursue all potential avenues to obtain relief for the people living in Mississippi's prisons and their families."
The two have now helped more than a dozen Mississippi inmates file a lawsuit, stating people are dying because the state "has failed to fund its prisons." Since late December, there have been at least five prisoner deaths in Mississippi, at least four at the hands of violent crimes.


In the lawsuit, they call the reported inhumane conditions a "culmination of years of severe understaffing and neglect." Already back in 2018, Mississippi Department of Corrections Commissioner Pelicia E. Hall reached out to the FBI to investigate the deaths of 15 inmates, all within a month.
