Wyclef Jean’s New Travyon Martin Tribute Song

Wyclef Jean's New Travyon Martin Tribute Song
By Damon Berger
  • Despite all the news around George Zimmerman over the last few days (ie. the bloody head, his apology, etc.), there’s still been intense continuing focus on Travyon Martin. Today, Wyclef Jean released a music video tribute to Martin called “Justice (If You’re 17).” In it, Jean sings “He could have been the next president, he could have been the next… he could be the next astronaut. The narrative of the video follows a 17 year-old that could have been Travyon (As Wyclef sings, “there’s one in every city.”) walking what could have been the same path in his neighborhood, ending with the same result.
