New Music: Wyclef Jean – ‘Justice (If You’re 17)’

Wyclef Jean

Wyclef Jean cries out for Trayvon Martin and “every 17-year-old around the entire globe” on “Justice (If You’re 17),” a powerful song inspired by the tragic shooting of the Florida teen.

“He could have been the next president/ He could have been the next Steve Jobs/ He could have been the next astronaut,” sings the former Fugees frontman.

Clef issues a warning over the guitar-laced beat. “If you’re 17 with a hoodie on, watch out for the neighborhood watcher.”

Hear his tribute to Trayvon below. A video is also set to premiere on April 20.

    @Kobe on the Laker floor, You should never wish death on someone. Its really nice. All i’m saying is I don’t understand why this kid is getting so much attention (even here in UK) yet we have things much worse going on everyday.

    Dear Wyclef,
    Go Back To The Cave You Was Hiding In Because You’re Like 2 Months Late With This Shit. Your Input Is Not Required , Try Again With A More Recent Tragedy. On Top Of That Your Response Was Luke Warm and You Said Basically What Every Other Carribean Adult Said. -_- .
    Sincerely, Me .

    Hold on now, people.. don’t beat Wyclef up too much. It’s a global culture to capitalize on tragedy. At the end of the day, Wyclef gets what he wants (and needs): some much needed PUBLICITY.

    I think its awesome that Wyclef did this song! The Trayvon Martin Case, is a big deal cause this kid was shot because he looked suspicious or out of place, what made him suspicious a hoodie he was wearing in the rain. Trayvon is important because he was a kid with skittles in his pocket on the way to watch a game and was shot because of the way he looked. Much love to Wyclef!
