Video: Wyclef Jean – ‘Justice (If You’re 17)’ [Trayvon Martin Tribute]

Wyclef Jean

Wyclef Jean cries out for Trayvon Martin and “every 17-year-old around the entire globe” in the video for “Justice (If You’re 17),” released in response to the tragic slaying of the Florida teen.

“This is not a brand new cause,” explained the former Fugees frontman. “This did not start with Trayvon. This has been going on for way too long. We can no longer say this is not my kid. This affects everyone and we all know a 17-year-old. This is my voice and this is how I’ve been speaking my entire life.”
