An aspiring rapper who arrested at a Georgia mall last year for allegedly selling his mixtape to shoppers appeared in court on Tuesday, reports CBS 46.

In the official police report, The arresting officer claims Jackson had been in trouble on two previous occasions for selling CDs in the mall, but his lawyer vehemently denies those charges.

“When he was there, he was not selling any c.d.s or doing anything that would have been prohibited he was there meeting other artists,” said Mawuli Davis.

On Monday, T.I took to social media to address the case and compared it to that of a white daycare worker Nataliia Karia who got a slap of the wrist for hanging a toddler.

“Give a 12 year old prison time for selling CDs And a middle aged witch probation for hanging a baby?!?!?! #ThisISAmerica #USorELSE,” Tip captioned an image of both headlines side by side.”




“Seriously like I really wake up everyday asking myself why would this police officer tell these ludicrous/ridiculous stories on me that now have me having to go to court facing a felony at 12 years old as if I’m really a robber, killer / Murderer or some kid that cuss out and fight police officers or sum!!” reads the caption to a post by Jackson.
