Posted on 04/23/2012 5:20:58 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

Wyclef Jean has recorded a new tribute song dedicated to slain Florida teenager Trayvon Martin...

On the track, Jean sings, "If you're seventeen, and you're wearing a hoodie, you're on the phone, talking to your shorty, make no mistake, there's one like you, in every city, you know the story.

"He goin' creep up, from behind, have you leave Earth, before your time, by the time PoPo (police) show up, he goin' say he was so scared he shot you up."

"He could have been the next president. He could have been the next Steve Jobs. He could have been the next astronaut. So until we get justice, we won't stop."

Wyclef almost ran for president of his native Haiti. But even Haitians didn’t want him and disqualified him because he did not meet the minimum requirements.

“He could have been the next president. He could have been the next Steve Jobs. He could have been the next astronaut..”

This was my laugh for the morning!!

The media came out immediately stating that St. Skittles was and “A/B student”

Yet his mother got a Court Order to seal his school records. HA. That tells me everything about this little genius!!

Astronaut, yes! His sorry ass was blasted into space!

“You don’t understand.
I coulda had class.
I coulda been a contender.
I coulda been somebody,
instead of a bum,
which is what I am,
let’s face it.”

Now put it to Rap.

I think there will be a surprising amount of “push back” should the natives get restless...

This is typical of Jean’s subculture— the thuggy, the free-loading, the let’s-riot-’cause-we’re-mad, the it’s-all-about-me, the I’ll-steal-it-and-be-proud crowd. Logic, common sense, reality mean nothing. What matters is “what I want, what I think, what I need and how soon I need it.” It’s about a definition of “good” that is unknown to anyone outside that culture.

The victimization cabal cannot entertain even the POSSIBILITY that Trayvon was the aggressor, despite most evidence pointing toward that conclusion.

If Jean really believes these lyrics, he is an uninformed jerk.

Did Elton John record his tribute yet....

Found this one on the Internet, I cannot claim credit for it.

Trayvon wears his gold grill like a crown,
Call his child Skittles, cause he likes the name,
Suspended from the finest school in town.

Trayvon, Trayvon like his money,
makes alot they say.
Spends his days dealing, by the playground way.

He was born a bastard to a ho,
6 weeks past Christmas day.
When the New Tork Times says Clintons great,
Tracy Martin had a son today.

And he shall be Trayvon,
And he shall be a hood man.
And he shall be Trayvon,
in tradition with the family plan.
And he shall be Trayvon,
And he shall be a hood man.
......he shall be Trayvon.

Trayvon, steals womens jewelry all day,
His family business thrives.
Skittles blows up balloons all day,
Sits on the porch watching them fly.

And Skittles, wants to go to Venus,
and leave Trayvon far behind.
Take a balloon and go sailing,
while Trayvon, Trayvon slowly dies.

And he shall be Trayvon,
And he shall be a hood man.
And he shall be Trayvon,
in tradition with the family plan.
And he shall be Trayvon,
And he shall be a hood man.
......heeee shaaaall beeee TraaaaayyyyVVVVVVooooooonn.

Wyclef Jean? Shouldn't he run running some sort of charity or something in Travon's name instead?

It would be less offensive than his singing.

It’s no “Mack The Knife”

Now, that was a ‘gangster’ song with class.

‘... and he keeps ‘em- pearly white!’

I can’t help singing “Trayvon” to the tune of Elton John’s “Levon”:

“Trayvon,
Trayvon likes his hoodie...”

I am actually looking forward to the riots when Zimmerman’s case is thrown out of court with prejudice.

Sorry. The fix is in.
