Hip-Hop Collision: Music, Race, and the Law

Atlanta-based defense attorney and #BillionDollarLawyer Drew Findling, who counts international hip-hop star Kiari Cephus — known onstage as Offset, one third of the music trio Migos — as a client, discusses the intersection of criminal justice, race, and hip-hop. These issues, common themes in hip-hop music, reflect deeply rooted societal schisms which play out endlessly in the collateral consequences of criminal conviction and mass incarceration. This session explores how recent events like rapper Meek Mill’s probation and imprisonment, as well as the Parkland shooting, continue to inspire artists, drive conversations, and mobilize fans to act.
