April 13, 2012

Words by Jesse Serwerโ€”

Wyclef Jean is the latest artist to address the Trayvon Martin case through song. “Justice (If You’re 17),” which blends ‘Clef’s impassioned, Marley-esque delivery with a dubstep-y riddim, definitely pulls no punches, with lyrics like, “Make no mistake there’s one like you in every city…he gon creep up from behind, have you leave earth before your time/By the time popo show up he gon say he so scared that he shot you up.”ย  The artist has promised to drop what’s sure to be a provocative video for the song next Friday.
