Jay-Z isn’t the only hip-hop legend involved in the upcoming documentary series Rest In Power: The Trayvon Martin Story; Black Thought has been tapped to create the title track, “Rest In Power,” which reflects on Trayvon’s death and legacy in a way only Black Thought can. Today, he’s sharing the song’s accompanying video, which pairs shots of The Roots MC in NYC’s Gotham Hall with powerful images from the documentary. The video was directed by Rohan Blair-Mangat (Jay-Z “Bam, dvsn “Too Deep”).

Rest In Power: The Trayvon Martin Story premieres July 30 on Paramount Network.
