A year ago today (May 25), George Floyd was murdered by Derek Chauvin. In memory of Floyd and the wave of protests against Black Lives Matter after his death, Houston rapper Bun B released the tribute song “This World”. Co-produced by Cory Mo and Zaytoven, the track includes Trae the Truth, Big KRIT and Raheem DeVaughn. Trae was a friend of Floyd in Houston, and in his verse he also recalls Breonna Taylor. Below is the video for “This World” with footage of protests.
Last year, Bun B and Trae the Truth led a march to Houston City Hall with George Floyd’s family. Read “Remembering George Floyd’s Life and Legacy in the Houston Hip-Hop Scene” on the plaza.
