Outrage: Jay-Z Criticized for Investing In Company That Sells GPS Software to Track Parolees

Jay-Z, pictured left with Nipsey Hussle, is under fire for investing $3 million in a startup company that assists state and local governments to track parolees by improving GPS monitoring technology.

The difference between Jay-Z and the late rapper Nipsey Hussle is that Nipsey uplifted his community while Jay-Z seeks to exploit and profit from it.

Promise is a de-carceration startup that raised $3 million in capital funding from corporations and individuals led by Jay-Z’s Roc Nation.

Promise doesn’t raise funds to bail detainees out of jail. Instead, Promise is a technology/software design company that sells apps that help government agencies track people who are released from jail under the First Step Act.
