Pusha T Launches Criminal Reform Campaign to Help Prisoners With Life Sentences
Earlier this week, Pusha T released a new song with Lauryn Hill called "Coming Home." The song set up the launch of the rapper's prison reform initiative, the Third Strike Coming Home campaign.
The program was designed to free people serving life in prison under the three-strikes drug law.

The law was introduced in 1994 by former President Bill Clinton, and states that anyone with a severe violent felony and two other previous convictions is liable to serve a mandatory life sentence in prison.
Pusha T has teamed up with lawyers MiAngel Cody and Brittany K. Barnett for the campaign and made a $25,000 donation to launch it.
"This is way more than a song, it’s a movement!" Pusha tweeted Wednesday. "We are doing everything in our power to bring home men and women trapped behind the wall due to an outdated 3 strikes drug law."
