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.
