Pusha T delivers a PSA for prison reform

Joined by Monica and Ludacris, the artists fight against mandatory minimum sentencing.

Adrien Vargas // REVOLT

This year alone, we saw Pusha T hit the White House to discuss criminal justice reform with President Obama and join Ty Dolla $ign in headlining a free #SchoolsNotPrisons tour. Now, he's appearing in a PSA in a fight against mandatory minimum sentencing laws.

Produced by Fictionless for their MySentence campaign, and made in collaboration with ECCO (The Entertainment Consortium Collaborative Outreach Program), King Push can be seen telling the story of Norman Brown, a former inmate who spent a large portion of his adult life in jail due minimum sentencing, from a powerful first-person POV.

Ludacris, Monica, and Gabourey Sidibe have also all been recruited to read the words of those who have detailed their path to crime, their convictions, their release and commutes (some ordered by Obama himself), and their lives on the outside.
