Everyone has their own way of honoring those who have lost their lives. Some ways are deemed classier than others, but who are we to judge. Rapper Plies honored slain teen Trayvon Martin by getting a gold chain and pendant made of the young teen’s face cloaked in a hoodie. According to the video Plies posted on YouTube, he’s been working on the piece for a few weeks. Plies commissioned the jewelry piece because the slaying of Martin truly affected him.
Check the video out below. What do you think of the piece and the reason behind its purchase?
