While some celebs paid tribute to Trayvon Martin with a moment of silence, song or peaceful protest, hip-hop artist Plies decided to take an unconventional route.

Earlier this week, the “Shawty” rapper posted a Youtube showcasing his new Trayvon Martin gold chain.

“I just got something back that means the world to me. I just wanted to share it with ya’ll,” he said. “Something I’ve been working on for a couple of weeks: my new Trayvon Martin piece.”

“Wanted to make sure I had the homie around my neck at all times,” he continued. “He impacted my life just that much. Double salute to the whole Martin family. I wanna tell you rest in peace, homie. I’ma keep you around my neck at all times. It’s just that important to me, man.”

He added, “Trayvon, you’ll forever live on.”
