Wyclef Jean has penned a tribute to the late Trayvon Martin called “Justice (If You’re 17).”  The Fugees frontman also had a video prepped and ready to go which uses footage of him performing the song in the studio as well as a narrative. 

In the clip, a teen is seen walking in the streets while chatting to who can be assumed is his girlfriend. However, the whole time he is being watched and followed.

“If you’re 17 with a hood on watch out for the neighborhood watcher,” goes part of the Reggae-infused song’s chorus. The song also lyrically takes cues from the George Zimmeram murder trial.

Young Jeezy also dropped a Trayvon Martin tribute song called “It’s A Cold World.”  Watch the J. Williams and Prescribed directed video for “Justice (If You’re 17)” below. You can also download the song right here.
