Days after Maybach Music Group leader Rick Ross released his seemingly George Zimmerman-directed “I Wondery Why” track, the “Boss” has stepped forward to speak on this month’s shocking verdict.
Clear and to the point, Ricky Rozay did not hold back his feelings toward Zimmerman being acquitted for fatally shooting teenager Trayvon Martin.
“I’m still angry,” Ross said. “I’m upset and really, really enraged. I’ve just been trying to keep from putting too much negative energy out there. So, you know, we’re just doing our thing behind our closed doors. But most definitely, that’s a big problem and something has to happen and it will.” (Global Grind)
The MMG boss touches on Floriday’s “Stand Your Ground” on his new “I Wonder Why” track.
Rick Ross dropped a new song today, “I Wonder Why,” in which he ponders his life. On the track, Ross wonders why his brother is incarcerated and why his ambition continues to push him forward. The MMG honcho also indirectly references slain Trayvon Martin and the incident which led to his death in Rozay’s home state of Florida. “Now I’m being followed by some creepy a** cracker,” Ross raps, a seemingly thinly-veiled reference to vigilante George Zimmerman following Travyon. “Stand your ground! Stand your ground! You gotta stand your ground!” Ross cries. Zimmerman stood behind Florida’s controversial Stand Your Ground law to justify shooting Trayvon since he felt “threatened.” (RapFix)
Clearly upset by the not guilty verdict, fellow Southern rapper T.I. said he would have went to extreme measures if someone took his own son’s life earlier this week.
“Man, it was some bulls**t,” said T.I. “My hat goes off to the Martin family, because if it was me and my child, there wouldn’t have been no trial. I’d have been on trial. It would’ve been the trial of the father who killed the man who killed [his child]. That would have been my story. My hat goes off because [the Martin family] are much more clear and level-headed thinkers than [myself].” (News Radio)
New York rapper Raekwon recently said the Martin family’s fate was sealed with the selected jurors.
“When I heard about the verdict, about the Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman case, I was sad,” Rae revealed in an interview. “I was disappointed in the justice system and I felt like they didn’t really pay attention to the case the way they were supposed to. The jurors, there were mothers there, and it hurt me to know that they wouldn’t even understand the fact that he’s still a child. This is a kid right here, this is not somebody that I’m saying, ‘Well, he looked the suspicion’ or ‘He looked like he was carrying [a weapon], he was going to draw on you’ or ‘He was bigger than you.’ This is a kid. He looked like he didn’t weigh no more than 120 pounds and you a grown man following him and you must have wanted to be this hero.’ And I think within the case, people didn’t look at it all the way.” (Fuse News)
