Immediately after George Zimmerman was declared innocent of the murder of Trayvon Martin – a decision that has sparked a spirited national conversation about racial profiling in America – Grammy award nominated R&B singer and songwriter Raheem DeVaughn wrote a heartfelt song called “TRIGGA MAN,” with the notion that the profits of the sale of the song going to the Trayvon Martin Foundation. That day is finally here! “Trigga Man” went up for sale on iTunes, yesterday, Thursday August 29th. Please support the cause by spreading the word and buying the single here:

 

A message song in the style of Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On,” “TRIGGA MAN” features DeVaughn speaking for Martin in a kind of open letter to George Zimmerman. “Dear murderer,” he sings. “Did you ever stop to think that I coulda been a surgeon, a father, a grandpa one day? Did you ever stop to think…or was it hatred on your mind?”

Buttressed with a fervent verse from veteran rapper Styles P, “TRIGGA MAN” has garnered a slew of press and has been praised as “soulful” by Nakiya Morgan of MTV News’s Rapfix blog, and as “heartfelt” by Global Grind’s Richy Rosario.

 

“America is at a tipping point,” says DeVaughn. “This country has made huge accomplishments, but it’s still very much divided. The undertone of racism still exists and modern day slaves still exist.”

 

DeVaughn is set to release his 4th studio album, A PLACE CALLED LOVE LAND on September 3rd.
