JAY-Z is currently working on a docu-series entitled Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story. The six-part special will examine the teen’s life, death and the trial that allowed killer George Zimmerman to walk free.
The Floridian has continued to make headlines for his outrageous statements, recently threatening the Brooklyn-born MC over the project.
Zimmerman claims his parents and uncle had been visited by the production crew without warning, and that Hov and executive producer Michael Gasparro indirectly “harassed” his family, according to The Blast. He also believes production has paid his ex-girlfriend and other family members to share their perspective for the documentary, a move that reportedly set southerner off.
He then took on a menacing tone, telling the site, “I know how to handle people who f*ck with me, I have since February 2012,” referring to the year he killed Martin.
“Anyone who f*cks with my parents will be fed to an alligator.”
Friend and fellow wordsmith Snoop Dogg immediately came to Hov’s defense, saying Zimmerman will catch hell if he attempts to harm the “I Know” MC.
