“You think I’m stupid enough to kill my reputation?” some of the lyrics of the new song say.
“Some people chasing that clout.”
Jussie also sings “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.”
In his Instagram caption, Smollett said that he dedicates the song to “the people who kept it real, who kept it true.”

Smollett was released from jail three weeks ago on March 16, after he was found guilty of staging a hate crime attack in 2019.
He was initially charged after the alleged January 2019 hoax attack, but those charges were later dropped.
The dismissal outraged Chicago officials, and special prosecutor Dan Webb was appointed to look into the case.
Smollett had claimed he was the target of a racist and homophobic attack, but cops allege that he paid two black friends $3,500 to help him stage the assault.
