Hip-Hop Rumors: Trayvon Martin and the Master P Connection

By now, we’ve all heard about the tragic death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Florida at the hands of an overzeaolus neighborhood watchman named George Zimmerman. More and more details about the case are emerging. Some good, bad, and some controversial about the character of the young man, as well as the intent of Zimmerman.

The Twitter handle to Trayvon’s now deactivated twitter account was @NO_LIMIT_NI**A, a phrase that rapper/actor and business man Master P made famous, as well as the partial name of his record label. One has to wonder, did Trayvon aspire to be a businessman like Master P? Did he have dreams of reaching his full potential, and did he believe that there was truly “no limit” to what he could achieve? These things we will never know.

In support of Trayvon, Hip-Hop has taken the initiative to speak out about his death and the injustice it feels he is receiving. Several artists have commented about the tragedy and even written songs speaking on the incident.

Below are three songs inspired by the Trayvon Martin murder, made by Plies, Mistah F.A.B and Jasiri X.

1. Piles – “We Are Trayvon (Trayvon Martin Tribute)”
Key lyrics: “I never thought wearing no hoodie, could cost your life / And I never thought you could just kill somebody and get out the same night”

2. Mistah F.A.B. – “God Don’t Love Me (RIP Trayvon Martin)”


Key lyrics: “The whole world wanna talk about Kony / But ain’t nobody speakin’ on the lil’ homie”


3. Jasiri X – “Trayvon”


Key lyrics: “Trayvon never gave his cousin his skittles / Missed the All-Star Game didn’t see another dribble”


Will Master P put a tribute song together as well? I hope so. The more we can do to shine a light on the case, the better.

    “More and more details are emerging about the case – and good, bad, and controversial about the character of the young man…”

    Sydney you better not be for real with this… where them “bad” and “controversial” details at?! I seriously hope you was talkin bout something other than his twitter handle…

    You a sorry azz writer -realtalk/nohate- that Master P connexion only exists in your empty head.
    Now that’s what you call “reachin…”

    Them songs was a very good look… but all that other bullsh!t was so unnecessary

      this is sad, this is not good

      • johnblacksad

        Im saying it’s a good look that some artists recorded a song to pay homage, and it’s a good look to post them

        That dumb azz Master P connection definitely wasn’t a good look… she really should have refrained from it

        …and of course that’s a sad tragedy! R.I.P. Trayvon

    Another horrible article. Are you serious with this trash?

    Alright. I usually hold my opinions on whether or not Sydney Lace is an experienced enough writer to be allowed to write articles for even this website. This article though served as the tipping point. How in the hell did you come up with this idea. I mean honestly, are you a f-ing retard? A better question who are the retards that run this shite site now who allowed you to even pass this off as journalism? And before you hide behind the shite argument that this is a rumor section which allows you a bit more latitude in subject matter, I’d like to remind you that the rules still apply for you. That said, the title of the article reads, ” Trayvon Martin and the Master P Connection”. Where is it? Tell me. Where the f is it? Because I can tell you where it isn’t, in this shite piece. Just be honest with me, you’re here for the check and the extra experience on your resume. Ok. Guess what a portfolio full of shit still reeks jackass. Think about that the next time you decide to post some more baseless drivel like this again.

    to be honest its really nothing about this young man background had  nothing to do with this because this dude had a gun and trevon didnt,wasnt a fair fight from the jump. justice needs to be served!!!!!!

  • Soulgasm

    Why are you exploiting this young man’s death for the sake of your articles?  This makes no sense, All Hip Hop staff.  If you chose to title this article, “Tributes To Trayvon”, then that’s beautiful.  However, to make a baseless connection on a baseless idea, is simply sloppy and disrespectful.  I can easily be disappointed with Sydney Lace for posting this, but I’m more disappointed in the AHH staff that’s approving this thoughtless garbage.  You all truly need to do some soul searching. smh…

    Trevon aspired to be a thug and a thief and a dealer, all the things glorified by rap.
