A rap artist is using his music to call for the assassination of businessman Donald Trump, who is leading the field of GOP candidates for president.

Rick Ross, who supports #BlackLivesMatter, raps in his latest song to “assassinate Trump like I’m Zimmerman,” referring to George Zimmerman who shot and killed black teenager Trayvon Martin in a controversial confrontation in Zimmerman’s white neighborhood.

Ross’ song, Free Enterprise, also focuses on elitism and politics within the Democratic Party, but it’s the line about Trump that has stirred talk about the limits of artistic license. The song also features singer John Legend.
