On the evening of July 13th, George Zimmerman was found not guilty in the slaying of Trayvon Martin, which sent a shockwave through the Hip Hop community and the country as a whole. This track was Jeezy's response to the verdict, and his words quickly became the most popular of the week. "I am in no way, shape, form or fashion trying to capitalize off of the latest series of events. These are my true feelings and my form of expression about it," Jeezy explained upon the song's release.
Thoughts on this? Did he do the situation justice?
I said them niggas come and get ya' like them boys did Osama
Cause' I'm the motherfuckin' man, shoutout to president Obama
Spilled somethin' on my tux, I couldn't even make the dinner
My pain is they pleasure, I'm the saint and the sinner
Since the street can be the judge and the jury
'Fore I go out like a sucker, keep the fame and the jewelry
First nigga to owe me called when they killed his little brother
Met him down at Grady, now I'm prayin' for his mother
Why'd they take Lil' Cam? Wish he could have been another
I was just smokin' with him, felt like I lost a brother
They killed Mikey, he went to serve a nigga by himself
I'm losin' homies everyday, I'm like "please, somebody else"
If nothin' else, nigga, I'mma do it for Trayvon
That's on a stack of Bibles and at least 2 or 3 Qurans
And what about Albert, murked my nigga at a wing stand
Eight years in the Feds, and he came home a changed man
It's a cold word...
