Vince Staples isn't convinced that Jussie Smollett should do time.
Jussie Smollett was the biggest point of conversation this month after he filed a police report for a hate crime allegedly committed against him. The Empire actor was accused of setting up his own attack and hiring two brothers to help carry out the attack. He's maintained his innocence throughout this whole ordeal, although Chicago Police state there's more evidence proving his guilt. However, Vince Staples believes that Jussie Smollett shouldn't face any jail time.

Vince Staples sat down with GQ where he discussed his current tour as well as relevant news topics. The rapper spoke on Jussie Smollett's case, saying that he doesn't understand why Smollett is dealing with so much backlash when Chicago Police also file false reports.
"Ah, man, free the Juice Man. He's just running a little scam," he said. "Shit, the fact he feels like he has to do that says more about this world and less about him. Because nobody wants to do that. Hopefully he don't get time because police are smoking people, falsifying police reports, and they get to go home so let my boy go home."
Staples also spoke on the Khloe Kardashian/Tristan Thompson scandal. In short, he doesn't care, but he does sympathize with both Khloe and Tristan due to the commentary on the Internet.
"Shit, that's not my business. And I think everybody who is obsessed with that on the internet is a loser," he said. "Any situation where people go through real-life things and people start to mock them, I can tell you haven't been through anything."
