Jay-Z and Kanye West dedicate track to slain student

Published: 08-09-2011
Jay-Z and Kanye West have dedicated a track on their new album Watch The Throne to a youngster killed by police last year (10).
Pace University student Danroy Henry was shot dead by a cop after a confrontation outside a bar in New York in October (10).
Now the 20 year old has been immortalised by the rappers, known collectively as The Throne, in new song Murder to Excellence.
Jay-Z kicks off the track with the line, "This is to the memory of Danroy Henry. Too much enemy fire to catch a friendly."
West later raps, "It's a war going on outside we ain't safe from/ I feel the pain in my city wherever I go."
The duo released Watch The Throne on Monday (08Aug11).
