The Trayvon Martin murder trial went on for several weeks before a trial was finally handed as not guilty for George Zimmerman. The verdict sparked a mass uproar across the country, with many people holding protests.
Rapper French Montana has responded to the trial and verdict, saying, "He was just the first one that got public, the people standing behind. But things like that happen almost every day where I'm from, so I'm used to it. I'm used to not getting the upper hand in the court of law. That's the system we're dealing with. ... The way everybody is reacting to the whole Trayvon situation, you can't get a better outcome."
Raekwon also responded to the verdict and the uproar it caused, saying, "When I heard about the verdict, about the Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman case, I was sad. I was disappointed in the justice system and I felt like they didn't really pay attention to the case the way they were supposed to. The jurors, there were mothers there, and it hurt me to know that they wouldn't even understand the fact that he's still a child..."
