Trailer: Dead Prez, Yasiin Bey and MikeFlo tribute to Trayvon Martin

Some really dope interview and studio footage from Dead Prez, Yasiin Bey and MikeFlo, as they put together a tribute to Trayvon Martin over the classic Nas ‘Made You Look’ beat (produced by the legendary Salaam Remi).

It’s heartening to see top-level established artists coming together to make a statement, raise awareness, educate and organise.

Also be sure to check out Jasiri X’s heart-felt tribute to Trayvon, over the ‘No Church in the Wild’ beat from Watch The Throne.
