Jay-Z and Team Roc File New Lawsuit Against Mississippi’s Parchman Prison

JAY-Z

Back in March, Yo Gotti and Roc Nation’s Team Roc filed a lawsuit against Mississippi’s Department of Corrections regarding the alleged inhuman conditions of the Parchman Prison.

“Inmates at Parchman have been forced to live in deadly environments that lack clean water, adequate food, electricity, heat, access to healthcare and clothing, among many other basic human necessities,” according to a press release by Team Roc. “While visitors are restricted from accessing the prison and visiting loved ones inside, the recent classification of COVID-19 as a pandemic and the rising death toll are cause for alarm in a penitentiary already low on resources.”

Now heading to June, Team Roc has filed a third lawsuit, going after Centene Corporation, the company responsible for the healthcare conditions at the prison.

The lawsuit continues to fight for the living conditions of inmates at Parchman Prison. Back in January, Team Roc leaked footage of the horrible conditions of the prison taken by inmates with contraband phones, noting that inmates were not receiving medical attention.

According to attorney Alex Shapiro, who is representing the Parchman inmates, 40 inmates have died in the past few months. “Over 40 inmates dying in the last few months at Mississippi DOC alone is neither outstanding nor innovative,” Shapiro told TMZ. “And it’s definitely nothing to be proud of.”

Centene has responded to the allegations via spokeswoman Marcela Hawn, stating, “Centurion and its board of directors are proud of the company’s history of providing outstanding and innovative health-care solutions to this vulnerable population. We look forward to sharing more about our role in the delivery of healthcare to these individuals during legal proceedings.”
