It’s Sunday the God’s day a day of rest
The Nba all stars are playing next
But right outside that same city
The celebratory atmosphere would change quickly
Who watching the game with me you know lil Trayvon
Was reppin his home town D Wade and LeBron
He had just came up from Miami to see his daddy
Who knew such a great weekend would end so badly
In a place where you move because it’s safe for your family
But some people got a ingrown hate for your family
Halftime just a short brake from the slammin
Bout to go to the store lil cuz you want some candy?
Bet I grab you some skittles kid
I’ll be right back in a little bit

Paid for lil cuz’s skittles and a ice t
walked out the store and felt the chill of the night breeze
it seemed a little colder than before
he didn’t know it was a boy like a soldier in a war
that was watching him clocking him thinking about stopping him
nine milly cocking them who’s this nigga walking in my neighborhood
he fits all the specifics of criminal statistics he looks suspicious
911, what’s your emergency
A black man’s walking through my hood purposely
stay clam, it’s just little Trayvon but he wanna be the hero so he put’s his cape on
George Zimmerman neighborhood block captain
loaded glock strapped in fake cop has been
got out the car ignoring what the cops asked him
They always get away this time that will not happin

George Zimmerman didn’t take his Ritalin
drunk off adrenaline says he making a citizens arrest
Trayvon looks at him vexxed
I just walked to the store nothing more nothing less
Just steps from his home he ignored his request
George grabs him, Trayvon swings and connects
Starts screaming out for help but Zimmerman see a threat
so he pulls out his gun and he points it at his chest
He fires but he misses Trayvon pleads for forgiveness
I didn’t do nothing this is senseless
but George Zimmerman was so vicious
he made sure the second shot hit em no survivor no witness
Trayvon never gave his cousin his skittles
missed the all star game didn’t see another dribble
And George Zimmerman wasn’t even arrested
the message is only white lives are protected
In America

    This is the shit that gets me. People comment all day about shit that doesn’t matter. Anything that matters always gets a pass. I’m not surprised at the lack of comments on this video. All your favorite rappers rap about is drugs and killing each other. None of them will stand up against injustice. Rap has become nothing but a minstrel show.

  • Elephant in the room…

    Publicity stunt. Too soon.

    this aint no publicity stunt, i’ve seen Jasiri X’s name coming up couple of years now and if you *read* or listen to any of his prior work, you would realize this.

    not that they give a F*ck but have any repubs running for president even mentioned Trayvons name? #twitter that $hit

    Heard the song on Michael Baisden’s radio show and had to come check the video. Great job on the lyrics. This is such a tragedy. R.I.P. Trayvon. We’re fighting hard for you and change in this messed up country.
