He then sings on, “It’s like they’re hellbent on not solving the crime / Taking out the elements of race and trans and homophobia that directly cost lives / But turn around and pretend I’m the one who killed the steps.’

The star continues, singing, “Maybe we stick together / Maybe we’ll read more / Instead of saying ‘it’s on me now’ / Brother are you sure?”

Elsewhere in the song, he talks about betraying others. “Let me rephrase / Because of the narrative they acted out / I’m really exaggerating the reason you felt cheated.”

The actor was released from prison pending appeal on March 16 after being sentenced to five months in prison.

He was convicted of five counts of disorderly conduct after a jury found he lied to police in January 2019 and has repeatedly since by claiming he had been assaulted by two white, homophobic Trump supporters.

In reality, the men were two black brothers who say Smollett paid them to perform to improve his speed profile.

Smollett’s claims sparked a media frenzy when he filed a report with the Chicago Police Department on January 29, 2019.

Sympathy for the “ailing” actor gushed from both the entertainment industry and fans, and police launched a manhunt for his alleged assailants at taxpayer expense.

He was convicted in December 2021, sentenced last month and released six days later.
