Rick Ross - Rick Ross Uses Witness Testimony In New Trayvon Martin Song

Rapper Rick Ross has sampled a witness' testimony from the Trayvon Martin case in his new song I Wonder Why.

The Hustlin' hitmaker's new track features the voice of Rachel Jeantel, who was the last person to talk to the unarmed black teenager before he was shot dead by Florida neighbourhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in February, 2012.

Zimmerman was acquitted of murdering Martin during a trial earlier this month (Jul13) and the controversial verdict sparked protests across the U.S.

Now Ross has aired his thoughts about the slaying in a new track, in which he draws comparisons between his life and that of the 17 year old's.

He also makes it clear he's not a fan of America's controversial Stand Your Ground legislation, which allows an individual to use reasonable force to defend themselves without retreat - the reasoning Zimmerman used in his defence.

In the song, Ross raps, "Now I'm being followed by some creepy-a** c**cker/Now I'm being followed by some creepy-a** cr**cker/ Stand your ground, stand your ground/Stand your ground, you gotta stand your ground."
