Jay-Z and Kanye West have a song on their new album out this week that pays tribute to slain Pace University football player, Danroy Henry.
Jay-Z and Kanye West have dedicated a song to a Pace University student killed by a police officer.
"Murder to Excellence'' is on their new album "Watch the Throne.''
Jay-Z raps: "This is to the memory of Danroy Henry.''
The 20-year-old from Easton, Mass., was killed Oct. 17 as he drove from a disturbance outside a bar in Thornwood, N.Y., following Pace's homecoming game.
Police Officer Aaron Hess said he fired to stop the driver after he was hit and thrown onto the hood. A grand jury cleared him of wrongdoing.
An autopsy found Henry's alcohol level above the legal limit.
The Journal News says Aria Smith, a Henry family friend, praised the hip-hop artists for the song.
Smith says it calls much-needed attention to the case.
