Rapper Rick Ross defended his controversial lyrics involving Trayvon Martin found on his upcoming album Mastermind.
Ross wrote the Rolling Stone to defend his rap:

In new song “Black and White,” Ross rhymes,

Forbes dot com, I’m the Teflon Don
Too close to a n—a as a motherfucking bomb
Trayvon Martin, I’m never missing my target
Bitch n—as hating, tell me it’s what I’m parking.

The rapper sent an email to Vibe clarifying his lyrics. “It’s so important that today, on the two-year anniversary of the death of Trayvon Martin, we never forget that tragedy,” Ross said. “I’m never going to let the world forget that name. In my song ‘Black and White’ off Mastermind I say, ‘Trayvon Martin, I’m never missing my target.’ There I’m reminding people that if you’re a black person or a person of any color for that matter in this country, you have to be accurate, whatever moves you make, stay accurate. Even when you’re walking down the street, playing music from your car, you have to stay on point.”

Ross went on to say that he could relate to Martin and how, growing up in Florida as Martin did, he could have been a shooting victim under similar circumstances.

It’s nice to know the n-word is alive and well in the rap world.

Trayvon Martin was killed after he jumped an armed neighborhood watchman in Florida.
