This musician is about to add a few more credits to his already impressive resume. It's been reported that Jay Z is working on a Trayvon Martin series with the Weinstein Company, which will help illustrate Martin's tragic story.

Previously, Jay Z bought the rights to two books about the slain teen - one is Suspicion Nation: The Inside Story of the Trayvon Martin Injustice and Why We Continue to Repeat It by Lisa Bloom. The other, Rest in Power: The Enduring Life of Trayvon Martin, was written by Martin's parents after the incident took place.

The story of Martin took the world by storm. In 2012, Martin - an African-American 17-year-old - was fatally shot in his neighborhood by George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch coordinator. Martin was unarmed. <iframe src="//giphy.com/embed/l46CBLsMbeacoye9G" width="480" height="266" frameborder="0" class="giphy-embed" allowfullscreen="" scrolling="no" resize="0" replace_attributes="1" name=""></iframe><p><a href="http://giphy.com/gifs/election2016-dnc-2016-sybrina-fulton-l46CBLsMbeacoye9G">via GIPHY</a></p>ÝÍzõλiîÜw¯wŸ{q½zé×Ú߶ÝõööõÝ=

Jay Z has been very vocal about the case. Not only did he buy the story rights, but he followed the news and made sure to attend a "Justice For Trayvon" rally in New York City.

In 2013, Jay Z also did a duet with Justin Timberlake of "Forever Young," dedicating it to Martin.

So, we've got a good feeling that these projects are in good hands. And yes - the word is projects. Besides the documentary series, which is currently rumored to be set in six parts, Jay Z has also expressed interest in creating a feature film for Martin if everything goes to plan.

No matter what, we'll be watching. We think these projects will serve as a beautiful tribute.
