On July 30, Jay-Z’s documentary on slain teenager Trayvon Martin, Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story, began to be aired on the Paramount Network and BET, the 6 part series airs new episodes on Mondays at 9pm.

When asked about his overall intent with the documentary, Jay was not hesitant to disclose that even though the documentary is educational, he is also aiming for the documentary to inspire change in the ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws.

“Yes, absolutely,” he said in response to Aisha Harris from The Times’ when she asked him if he had goals of changing the law. “Again, it’s an educational process. This law, we have to get people to understand what it says. Of course, he will not be found guilty. It’s very difficult to be found guilty with this law as it stands today.”

Hova went on to say, “The system doesn’t work as it exists today. No one wants to talk about that because it’s as if you are bashing police officers. I’m not bashing police officers. I’m just saying the facts do not support this being the answer, the system as it stands today.”

17 year-old Trayvon was fatally shot 70 yards from the rear door of the townhouse he was staying at with family, by George Zimmerman (neighborhood watch coordinator for the gated community) just moments after George ended a call with the police after being instructed by the police not to follow Trayvon. George called the police because he assumed the African-American teenager, Trayvon, was a drug addict or a thief.

The documentary focuses on the killing of Trayvon Martin since the shooting became a huge American talking point and helped spur the “Black Lives Matter” movement. The 6 part story delves into the tragic event which the network describes as “a story about race, politics, power, money and the U.S. criminal justice system.”
