'Making A Murderer' Convict's Half Brother Releases Rap Track

"Not a fair trial. Not a fair game. Whole thing’s whacked. Just a lying shame.”

The half brother of Brendan Dassey, one of two convicted murderers made famous by the Netflix docuseries "Making A Murderer," has released a rap song protesting, as the lyrics state, the "injustice" that was "slammed in the face of two innocent people."

Brad Dassey, a 32-year-old, self-proclaimed Christian hip-hop and rap artist, shared his song, titled “They Didn’t Do It,” earlier this week along with a note:

"Here's a track I wrote, spent 10 hours straight on about Brendan Dassey and Steven Avery. Brendan is my half brother in prison ... Please download and SHARE my new track to bring justice to my brother!"

Brendan Dassey walks to the courthouse to hear the verdict in his case in 2007 in Manitowoc, Wis. A jury found Dassey guilty of raping a 25-year-old freelance photographer, Teresa Halbach, and helping his uncle, Steven Avery, kill her and burn her body.

Avery and his nephew Brendan were convicted and sentenced to life in prison for the 2005 death of Teresa Halbach. 

After the success of "Making A Murderer," many have come to the convicted killers' defense, convinced that, as their attorneys argued in court, Avery was framed by police for Halbach's death and Brendan, then 16, was coerced into a false confession.

In the track, Brad, who shares a father with Brendan, raps: "Things clearly showed that it was just a joke. Cops were only there just to prod and poke. Not a fair trial. Not a fair game. Whole thing’s whacked. Just a lying shame.”

As of Wednesday, the song had 131,000 plays on SoundCloud and nearly 50,000 on Youtube.

This is INSANE! Radio stations from around the GLOBE are reaching out and playing the song, my friends are saying! ...

Brad told The Daily Beast he was influenced to write the song because the media focus seems to be entirely on Avery, with nobody talking about his half brother. 

"The poor guy just got railroaded by investigators and got the raw end of the deal, and somebody needs to support him," he said.
