Jasiri X does his part for Trayvon Martin while the case gets major
March 20, 2012
In an update to our previous post, word just came in that both the state and the Feds are getting involved in the Trayvon Martin case, the incident last month where an unarmed 17-year old African-American kid was gunned down by a zealous neighborhood watch guard in a Florida gated community. Both state and federal authorities are looking into the incident, as the FBI has begun their probe of the incident and a Florida grand jury has been convened. And as the story has finally landed on the front pages of CNN.com, The New York Times, and BBC News, Pittsburg’s Jasiri X goes through the black people CNN* route and releases a video on YouTube, over the beat to Watch The Throne’s “No Church in the Wild”, and delivers a monologue on the killing to explain why we should care. Check out that video above. *That’s hip-hop for you youngins. See: D, Chuck.
