pharoahe monch – stand your ground | justice for trayvon martin


“In light of the Zimmerman verdict and polarizing debates on racial profiling, civil rights and the justice system, Pharoahe Monch releases “Stand Your Ground.”

Originally intended for his upcoming PTSD LP, the W.A.R. emcee chose to release the rough version today to encourage people to “get involved.”
