The Trayvon Martin case continues to be a polarizing social issue and has caught the attention of celebrities, President Obama and now, artists in the music community. Diddy, Frank Ocean, The-Dream, Nelly and others have posted photos on their Twitter accounts wearing hoodies in remembrance of Trayvon Martin.

Martin was the unarmed 17-year-old teen who was shot to death by a neighborhood watch guard named George Zimmerman in the gated community of Sanford, Fla. It was Martin’s hoodie that aroused suspicion with Zimmerman, which led to the deadly shooting. The case has sparked “Million Hoodies March” rallies in cities nationwide to seek justice for Martin.

“I didn’t know wearing a hoodie made me a target,” tweeted Diddy who posted a pictured himself in a dark hoodie. Nelly also sported a hoodie and added a link to the Change.org petition to have George Zimmerman prosecuted for shooting Martin. On his Tumblr page, a hooded Frank Ocean pointed two fingers to his head resembling a gun and wrote, “suspicious black.”

The-Dream, Jamie Foxx and Swizz Beatz also posted photos of themselves in hoodies to show their support for Trayvon Martin, adding the hashtag HoodiesUp (#HoodiesUp) so others can do the same on Twitter.

It was always good to see music artists speak out on social issues, so when they come together for a noteworthy cause, you have to give them props.

Let’s us also pray for Trayvon Martin’s family and hope they get the answers they deserve in this tragic incident.
