Black Thought – Rest In Power (Official Music Video)

Black Thought honors the late Trayvon Martin with an official music video for “Rest In Power.”

The Roots artist said this about the song:

“I wanted to write something that somehow addressed a broader issue and addressed American tradition and how for so many generations this same sort of thing has been taking place.”

Watch below and expect “Rest In Power” to appear on Jay Z’s upcoming Rest In Power: The Trayvon Martin Story documentary series premiering July 30th.
