Controversial George Zimmerman is back in the news after threatening to “beat up” and feed rap mogul Jay-Z and executive producer Michael Gasparro to “an alligator” holding them responsible for the harassment and non payment to his parents while filming the docuseries titled “Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story.” Zimmerman’s comments also come from money paid to his ex-wife over her alleged participation in the documentary.
In association with Jay-Z and The Weinstein Company, this 6-part series is based off the book “Suspicion Nation”, by Lisa Bloom and follows the life/ death of Trayvon Martin and contentious acquittal of George Zimmerman in 2013. Zimmerman also stated “I know how to handle people who f*** with me,” adding “I have since February 2012.” referring to the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin On February 26, 2012.
Neither Jay-Z nor Gasparro have yet to respond.
Following his comments, Hip Hop legend Snoop Dogg came to the defense of his lyrical companion by posting on Instagram, ‘If one hair on jays hair is touched that’s when the revolution will b televised,’ Snoop Dogg continued. “We one… thank the system, let the B**** ass m********* get away with murder, try it again. Trayvon Martin Gone but not forgotten.”

Who knew an unarmed 17 year old teenager is scarier than a grown man from Brooklyn’s Marcy Projects. Clearly, Zimmerman doesn’t get that a threat made on one of the most influential hip hop artists in the world will never go lightly. If Snoop’s comments weren’t enough, take notes from “Streets is Watching” off the “In my Lifetime, Vol. 1 album”
“The type to start a beef then run to the cops, when I see you in the street got one in the drop”
Completion of the project is still unclear amidst the Harvey Weinstein scandal that has since financially affected the Weinstein production company.
