Jussie Smollett – who was convicted on charges stemming from a hate hoax attack – released a new song to plead his innocence yet again.

In the single titled “Thank You God,” Smollett said the song was the “best way I know how” to channel his thoughts about his arrest. In the rap song, Smollett claims that transphobia and homophobia were factors in the arrest for the staging of a racist, homophobic hate crime against himself.

“It’s like they’re hell-bent on not solving the crime, taking out the elements of race and trans and homophobia that’s straight taking lives, but turn around and act like I’m the one that killed the strides,” Smollett sings on his track.

The former “Empire” actor sings that he is innocent.

“Some people searching for fame, some people chasing that clout,” Smollett sings. “Just remember this. This ain’t that situation. You think I’m stupid enough to kill my reputation?”

“Just simply to look like a victim. Like it’s something fun,” the 39-year-old actor raps. “Y’all better look at someone else. You got the wrong one.”

Smollett mentions CNN news anchor Don Lemon as well as filmmaker and “Empire” co-creator Lee Daniels.

“They had my own people, thoughts going off the wall. That’s why from L.D. to Don, I still got love for ya’ll,” Smollett says. “I know we’ll meet again, talk like real men. Instead of sharing shade in rooms and up on CNN.”

In 2019, Smollett informed law enforcement that he was assaulted by two men who yelled racist and homophobic slurs at him while tying a noose around his neck while he was walking to a Subway restaurant at 2 a.m. on a sub-zero night. Smollett claimed that during the attack in Democrat-controlled Chicago that his attackers screamed, “This is MAGA country!”

In December 2021, Smollett was convicted on five counts of felony disorderly conduct and acquitted on a sixth. He had pleaded not guilty to the counts.

Smollett was sentenced to 150 days in jail, but was released from Cook County Jail after serving only six days of his sentence for lying to the police about being the victim of a hate crime. Smollett was ordered to pay $120,106 in restitution to the city of Chicago and a $25,000 fine.
