VIDEO: Yasiin Bey (Mos Def)/ Dead Prez/Mikeflo — Behind The Scenes: Trayvon Martin Tribute Video

A nother musical response to #TrayvonMartin’s murder m4s0n501

The single’s on its way, and it’s called “Made You Die.” It uses the music track from Nas’s “Made You Look”.  In the meantime, Bey (formerly known professionally as Mos Def), talks about the importance of what they’re doing:

At the end of the day, you could be a better pop star or a bigger celebrity. But particularly if you come from poor communities, from black communities, you see a casual, systemic indifference to black life.  And so, you have to respond. It’s in your own self-interest. It’s not even outstanding or courageous.

H/t to Afro-punk for the heads up
