There's a push by Jay-Z and some more rappers to try to ban rappers music from  being used against them in a court of law. So the question is do you think they should be held liable for some of their musical content that result in criminal activity?  

Jay Z is supporting a proposed law that would block rap lyrics from being used as evidence of alleged crimes in court.

According toRolling Stonerappers Meek Mill, Big Sean, Fat Joe, and Yo Gotti are among the rappers who have joined forces with Jay Z (real name Shawn Corey Carter) to call on New York lawmakers to pass Senate Bill S752.

The bill has been brought forward by Democrat senators Brad Hoylman and Jamaal Bailey, and assembly member Catalina Cruz.

The legislation would limit the use of “creative expression” as evidence and push prosecutors to prove that such art is not fictional, with “clear and convincing evidence”.
