According to Billboard, the Brooklyn rapper released a statement after Cuomo’s State of the State address this week. Some of the governor’s key points in his package include a special prosecutor to investigate special cases similar to the Eric Garner incident last July. He also suggests that an independent group would look into cases that involved the death of an unarmed civilian or cases that don’t end up in front of a grand jury.

“I commend Governor Cuomo for his bold leadership in taking this issue head on at this critical time,” the BK rapper said in a statement to Capitol Confidential. “This package presents comprehensive steps to protect and improve relations amongst all citizens. We cannot be divided, as every single human being matters. Together, we can move forward as a community, with mutual respect for each other and continue to make this great state stronger than ever before.”
