Kim Kardashian has heaped praise on music producer David Jassy for creating a mixtape while serving time at San Quentin State Prison in California.
The enterprising hitmaker recorded the 17-track project behind bars and ahead of its release on Friday, May 29, the reality star shared words of support and praised Jassy’s dedication to his music project, which features raps from fellow inmates.
“You guys should be so proud of yourselves,” Kardashian said in a video message. “Now that the world gets to hear your passion through this music, its just so amazing how you’ve formed this path and shown how this community can grow through your music and share such a positive message. It’s amazing and I can’t wait for the world to hear it.”
Jassy previously worked with Britney Spears, Sean Kingston, and Ashley Tisdale before he was incarcerated for killing a man during an altercation. While serving time behind bars he established a music-focused programme within the Youthful Offenders Program to teach producing and recording to fellow inmates.
David’s sentence was commuted by California Governor Gavin Newsom in March and he has since returned to his native Sweden to resume his career.
