Big Gates/Slip-N-Slide/Atlantic recording artist Plies has joined the numerous public figures who have paid tribute to 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, with a YouTube video titled "We Are Trayvon." The track, which was produced by Filthy Beatz, was released via the Miami-native's YouTube page earlier this month, and is now available at all digital retailers. The song is now available to purchase at Plies' official webstore, which is here.
What's more, 100% of the profits of single sales of "We Are Trayvon" will be donated to the Justice For Trayvon Martin Foundation. You can watch the video for "We Are Trayvon" below:
Plies hopes that the release of "We Are Trayvon," will contribute to the growth of the Justice For Trayvon Martin Foundation and other organizations that are dedicating their efforts to remove elements of judgment while uplifting young black men in the eyes of the general public, as well as assisting other families that are suffering from similar situations as the parents of Trayvon Martin.
The Justice For Trayvon Martin Foundation was founded in 2012 with the mission of pursuing justice for all people of color on behalf of Trayvon Martin, the son of Sybrina Fulton & Tracy Martin. The main goal of the fund is to address the civil rights and social issues while addressing the uplifting and advancement of young minorities. The foundation also has set its sights on ultimately amending the "Stand Your Ground" law, which is enforced in Florida as well as many other states.
