Wyclef Jean has released a new song, “Justice (If You’re 17),” dedicated to Trayvon Martin and other young men his age.
Wyclef said in a press release, “When I think of Martin Luther King Jr. and his statement ‘injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere,’ I had to do something. This did not start with Trayvon. We can no longer say, this is not my kid. This affects everyone and we all know a 17-year-old.”
If you’re 17 with a hoodie on/ Watch out for the neighborhood watcher/ If you’re at the right neighborhood at the wrong time/ Neighborhood watcher/ This might be your last call to your girlfriend/ The neighborhood watcher/ Man I feel for you if you’re 17.
A music video for “Justice” is slated to be released April 20.
