He Did What? Rapper Plies Shows Off His Trayvon Martin Tribute Gold Chain!

September 7, 2013  |  


Whatever you just said to yourself, I’ve already said it. Deal with it and let’s move on. Rapper Plies recently showed off his brand new Trayvon Martin Tribute gold chain.

Rapper have always been known to find their own unique ways to show love, honor and respect to someone or something that meant a lot to them. We know that many of them were deeply affected by the death of Trayvon Martin and the results varied from rap songs in dedication to tattoos in Trayvon’s memory.

Earlier this week, Plies posted a video on Youtube showcasing his new Trayvon Martin tribute gold chain.  In the video, he stated:

“…Wanted to make sure I had the homie around my neck at all times. He impacted my life just that much.  Double salute to the whole Martin family. I wanna tell you rest in peace, homie. I’ma keep you around my neck at all times. It’s just that important to me, man. Trayvon, you’ll forever live on.”

Sure, there’s a lot you can say about this. “Oh, why didn’t he donate some money to the foundation?” “This is stupid.” I’m sure there are valid thoughts and opinions across the board; however, this is what he thought was most appropriate for him.  Plies is not known for intellectual rhymes (he might be the most recent king of ratchet and raunchy music) so I don’t think anyone would expect him to write some deeply moving article or anything (but don’t get it twisted – he’s actually not an ignorant man at all).

That said…I can’t wait to hear your thoughts. Check out the video below!

    NIce, while Trayvon’s supporters tried to distance him from a violent image we have Plies and his self-aggrandizing tales of criminal exploits.

  • Chas

    This is getting out of hand. But to each their own.

  • Julia

  • Kenedy

    Even the ratchet people, have their own way of honoring people…so hey, go for it

    I don’t understand what’s wrong with him wearing that chain to symbolize Trayvon. I think it’s a great idea and it’s a shame that this weboste puts down people who stand for something. It really shows the website’s true colors.
