As closing arguments were underway in the George Zimmerman trial, Lil Scrappy released a song titled “Trayvon Martin.”
Zimmerman is accused of second degree murder trial in the death of the Florida teenager. The case is expected to go to the jury on Friday.
In the song, the Love & Hip Hop star sings about getting “legal justice” or “street justice” for the Black civil rights.
In a statement to RumorFix, Scrappy explains, “I did this song because it doesn’t seem like anyone is stepping up to stand up against this racism. I have had a lot of time lately to read and think. If no one stands up we all are gonna fall.”
Lil Scrappy recently completed a 30 day in-patient drug rehabilitation program and now visits with young people in schools to encourage them to say no to drugs.
