Raheem DeVaughn Channels Trayvon Martin on ‘Trigga Man’ (Feat. Styles P)
Raheem DeVaughn has released a song called ‘Trigga Man’ featuring Styles P in honor of the slain Trayvon Martin.
The song finds DeVaughn singing from the perspective of Martin on the fateful night he met his killer. Singing as Trayvon DeVaughn speaks directly to George Zimmerman, or as he calls him, “Trigga Man.” The song is about the hopes and aspirations a teenage boy had before losing his life prematurely. Styles P tackles systemic racism from a broader picture in his verse. The song ends with a news clip detailing the story behind the shooting death of seventeen-year old Jordan Davis, who was shot and killed by Michael Dunn in Jacksonville a few months ago despite being unarmed. The message is simple yet powerful: the shooting death of Trayvon Martin was not an isolated incident and should not be treated as such. Listen to the song below.
