Okayplayer for life Cody ChestnuTT pulls no punches on this raw acoustic track which is a Trayvon Martin tribute but not the politically correct kind we've come to expect in this media age. It's really more of an angry protest song, lit by a fire we don't see much in the current generation. Alternating between the opening stanza of "'re a murder" and the mantra of "Trayvon, Trayvon" repeated over and over the simple, almost freestyle performance--that ChestnuTT apparently recorded within 24 hours of the Million Hoodie March--still manages to express both the anger and the sense of loss Trayvon Martin's death has brought to the surface of the national consciousness.
