“I’ve just begun to bust, I’ll make this place open gondola/These racist cops wanna lock me longer than Nelson Mandela.” –Immortal Technique

Nelson Mandela was sentenced to a life sentence in prison along with five years hard labor in 1962. He spent the next 18 years on Robben Island before being transferred to Pollsmoor Maximum Security Prison. The last two years of Mandela’s incarceration were spent at Victor Verster Prison.
