Official Tribute Song for Trayvon Martin Set to be Released Today
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.
Key lyrics: "Black America / White America / We all gotta live here together"
