Derek Chauvin was found to have killed George Floyd by repeatedly kneeling on his neck for more than eight minutes, according to the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office. Ye, a guest on the podcast episode from the weekend hosted by DJ EFN and rapper N.O.R.E, advanced the theory that Floyd died from fentanyl use rather than from Chauvin’s negligence.

THE FAMILY SEEKS REMEDIES FOR HARASSMENT, DEFAMATION, AND MORE. Roxie Washington, the mother of Gianna Floyd, the only child of George Floyd and the sole heir to his inheritance, will bring the action.
