Philly Rapper Writes Song Defending Jodi Arias
Philadelphia Hip Hop artist Lefty is receiving national press after releasing a new song called Jodi Ann Arias, where he defends the convicted murderer and sheds light on issues previously ignored by mainstream media.
After being convicted of slitting her boyfriend’s throat and stabbing him more than 30 times, Jodi Arias became one of the most hated women in the world. Despite her conviction, rapper Lefty believes that Arias did not receive a fair trial due to public scrutiny and character villainization by the press. In his song he humanizes the convicted killer; exploring the depth of her story and insight into the unforeseen problems that may have led to her tragic outcome.
“I do think it was second degree manslaughter. I feel like it was not premeditated,” said the Lefty recently in an interview with the Phoenix News Times.
