Raheem DeVaughn Featuring Styles P “Trigga Man” #ATRAYVONMARTINSONG
Just two days after the verdict was announced in the landmark Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case, D.C. crooner Raheem DeVaughn releases a tribute song to the 17-year-old Martin in “Trigga Man,” appropriately hashtagged #ATRAYVONMARTINSONG. While this isn’t the first song about Trayvon and the recent trial, it’s an extremely moving tale told from the perspective of Trayvon as he pleads with his murderer. As DeVaughn sings lines like “Did you ever stop to think? Or was hatred on your mind?” and “I was supposed to be in the yearbook, I was supposed to be King at the Prom,” you can’t help but wonder how Martin’s life would’ve turned out had the altercation with Zimmerman never occurred. Styles P also stops by for an emotional guest verse about the world being “in a dark place.” Listen below.
