Young Jeezy reacts to George Zimmerman being found not guilty in the killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin by releasing the song “It’s a Cold World.”

In the track Jeezy posted on his Twitter and Facebook pages Saturday, the Atlanta rapper discusses the untimely deaths of his friends over a somber, electronic hip-hop ballad.

He raps, “I’m like losing homies everyday, I’m like kill somebody else. If nothing else, I’mma do it for Trayvon. That’s on a stack of bibles at least two or three Korans.”

Jeezy said he is not trying to take advantage of Martin’s death. “I am in no way shape, form, or fashion am trying to capitalize off of the latest series of events,” he said in a statement. “These are my true feelings and my form of expression about it.”
