After being released while awaiting a decision on his appeal, Empire actor, Jussie Smollett has just released a new song claiming his innocence in the crime for which he was convicted of.

#ThankYouGod

As he recites the lyrics in spoken-word form as the track plays in the background, Smollett goes on to say: “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 / I can’t be mad / Take my ego out / 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? / Just simply to look like a victim like it’s something fun,” he adds. “Y’all better look at someone else, you got the wrong one.”

Last month, after his attorneys put in a request to have their client released pending the appeal of his case, Empire actor Jussie Smollett was released from jail.

According to NBC News, a court has granted a motion that allows Smollett to be released from jail pending an appeal. The motion requested that the sentence be stayed or placed on hold.

Smollett is appealing a recent sentence of 150 days in jail after being convicted of falsely reporting to police that he was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack in 2019.

As BLACK ENTERPRISE previously reported, the now-disgraced former Empire star was found guilty of five counts of disorderly conduct for making false crime reports to Chicago police, saying he was a hate crime victim in 2019.

According to USA Today, Smollett was found guilty on five of the six counts of disorderly conduct — one count for each separate time he was charged with lying to police after the attack.
On the sixth count, Smollett was acquitted of lying to a detective in February, several weeks after he initially claimed he was attacked.
