(AllHipHop News) Geto Boys member Willie D. and Scarface have released a a new track dedicated to slain teenager Trayvon Martin.
Willie and Scarface have teamed with rappers Propain and D.Boi for the song “Hoodiez,” which speaks out against the handling of the case.
“For those who think Hip-Hop is dead, I say no. This song and video is proof that it’s alive and well,” Willie D. said. “This is easily one of the most powerful songs ever. The message is strong, dead on and it needs to be heard.”
The track comes on the heels of news
that George Zimmerman, the man accused of shooting and killing Trayvon, has been charged with second-degree murder.
George Zimmerman, the former neighborhood watch man accused of following the 17-year-old and shooting him during an altercation.
The case drew outrage around the world, because it took over 45-days to bring the charges against Zimmerman, due to Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law, which grants immunity if one uses deadly force, in self-defense.
“Let’s show law enforcement and the powers that be in Congress that we are fed up,” Willie D. added. “Let’s make sure they hear our voices loud and clear by the attention we give to this artistic masterpiece of a song. Again retweet, repost and share, share, share. Thank you.”
