T.I. Rips Criminal Justice System For Charging 12-Year-Old Rapper With A Felony

Posted by

T.I. is calling out the criminal justice system for charging a 12-year-old rapper with a felony.

Corey J — who also goes by Lil C-Note — was arrested last October for selling CDs at a Georgia mall. Last week, he appeared in court where he faced charges of disorderly conduct with violence, criminal trespassing and an obstruction felony.

Tip shared a screenshot of two television news stories, comparing Corey J’s situation with a white woman accused of hanging a toddler in her basement who only received probation for her alleged crime.

“Give a 12 year old prison time for selling CDs And a middle aged witch probation for hanging a baby?!?!?!” he wrote in the caption. “#ThisISAmerica #USorELSE.”

At Corey J’s February 27 court date, his attorney Mawuli Davis reportedly denied all charges.

“When he was there, he was not selling any CDs or doing anything that would have been prohibited he was there meeting other artists,” Davis said.

Corey J was in Georgia visiting family when the incident took place. Police say he was told twice to stop selling his mixtapes before he was ultimately arrested. His aunt captured the entire interaction on video and the clip soon went viral.
