This comes after Johnson, who also happens to be a rapper by the name of “Straight Drop” had his phone, writing, and visitation privileges revoked without hearing. Johnson is only allowed to communicate with is his attorney. Luke Evans claims the decision to strip Johnson of phone privileges shows impartiality and bias. It was allegedly discovered by the court that Johnson recorded and released a song while locked up, seemingly bragging about the murder accusations.

“Say I’m a rapper, the state say that I’m a paid killer.”

Johnson and Smith will both appear in court on March 24th for the charges related to the murder of rapper Young Dolph.
