After news that George Zimmerman was found not guilty in the murder of Trayvon Martin Saturday night (July 15), Young Jeezy released a tribute song to honor the fallen teen. The elegiac ‘It’s a Cold World’ speaks on the injustice that occurs in the ‘hood.

On the track, the Snowman reflects on the loss of friends and associates who succumb to street violence.

“Why they take little Kay out, wish he could have been another / I was just smokin’ with him, felt like I lost a brother / They killed Mikey, went to serve a n—- by himself / I’m losin’ homies everyday, I’m like please somebody else / If nothin’ else n—-, I’mma do it for Trayvon / That’s on a stack of Bibles, least 2 or 3 Qurans.”

Young Jeezy also wants to make clear that he wasn’t trying to capitalize off the media attention surrounding the trial.

“I am in no way shape, form, or fashion am trying to capitalize off of the latest series of events. These are my true feelings and my form of expression about it,” said Jeezy.

Props to Young Jeezy and his somber remembrance of lives lost to violence.
