Trayvon Martin
As news continues to unravel daily surrounding the killing of Trayvon Martin, a number of rappers have already recorded songs expressing their feelings about the 17 year-old African-American youth shot to death by George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida. Chaka Khan and musical guests also went into the studio to re-record "Super Life" in the teenager's memory. Two nights ago, Bruce Springsteen dedicated "American Skin (41 Shots)" to Martin at a concert in Philadelphia.

Now, 90s R&B vocalists The Rude Boys and Trick Daddy, one of the most commercially successful rappers to have emerged from Florida, have teamed together to record an official Trayvon Martin tribute song. "Believe in Love" is set to be released later today on iTunes in addition to being available for purchase on ReverbNation and CDBaby



The Rude Boys have just uploaded the track onto YouTube for people take a listen and all proceeds from sales of the song will directly benefit the family through the Trayvon Martin Justice Foundation.

Key lyrics: "Black America / White America / We all gotta live here together"

Come on, that picture isn't nearly innocent enough.  Get us a picture of Preyvon as a toddler, that will rile up the perpetually unemployable to go out and FSU!

The death of the kid was a tragedy without question.  However, those who would annoint him into "Sainthood," would do well to wait until the various investigations are finished and the facts are in.  My gut feeling is that there is more to this story than meets the eye and a lot of the race baiters could be standing around with egg on their face.  Sometimes the wheels of justice move slowly, but they usually get there in the end.

Trayvon in a hoodie was enough to arise Zimmerman's 'suspicions' and Geraldo Rivera's stupidity. Sadly...
