Jasiri X releases new 'TRAYVON' song: "The message is only White lives are protected in America"


Over the weekend, I tweeted to my followers "I'm sure @Jasiri_X will be the ONLY hip-hop artist to address this #Trayvon Martin case with some serious bars. We await...."

Well, it looks as if my prediction was on point because Jasiri X once again steps up to the plate to deliver much needed lyrics to further spread the call for justice in the case of Trayvon Martin. No more to say. Press Play, Reflect and Spread this song everywhere. Reposted from http://jasirix.bandcamp.com/track/trayvon.

Update: Jasiri released the video "Trayvon" later today! View @ http://youtu.be/YKaJoEyYXyI



"Trayvon" lyrics by Jasiri X

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
