Blaqstarr Is Being Held in a Baltimore Jail
According to their social media and friends, the DJ and artist Blaqstarr is being held in a Baltimore jail. Blaq's Instagram posts have been keeping fans updated on the situation:
To Blaqstarr fam, fans & friends we regret to inform you he won't be making scheduled appearances this weekend. Unfortunately he's fallen victim to Baltimore's in-justice system and is being held without bail as a result of a situation resulting from 1 gram of marijuana The officer that killed than man in Tulsa Ok was given bail and out in 30 min, but Blaq and thousands of other (Black men especially) are sitting in jail waiting for trials for minor cases. We must continue to value our lives in order to fight for them ! #StayWoke means staying on top of the systematic ways they try to keep us slaves and resist! This system compromises are freedom, tries to keep us poor and therefore dependent on them. It hurts entire families. We shouldn't wait until someone is killed to call for transparency and accountability from them . Start with your own family ! The original issue hasn't even been tried in court yet but there's already been growing legal fees and lost wages. If you're interested in helping financially , please see link in bio. Will keep you posted on how to help in other ways come Monday Thank you to everyone who came to the event last night and lent their support - Mia #Baltimore #freeblaq
Currently, Blaq is asking for people to contribute whatever donations to a Paypal which will go towards bail.
