We've covered the disappearance of 5-year-old Jhessye Shockley over at Valley Fever, our news blog, for the past few months, and it is a story that has shifted from a missing person investigation to a homicide investigation, with Shockley's mother, Jerice Hunter, as the number one suspect.

The story has also sparked a dialog about media coverage of these kind of cases, prompting Phoenix-based rapper Trap House, to release a new track, "Jhessye," late last week. The song is dedicated to the missing girl, with Trap adding a message on his Facebook page: "Please listen to this and share it. Jhessye Shockley should never be forgotten."

Loaded with samples of local news reports, Trap takes aim at the media for not covering the story, stating that the two-day Amber Alert and subsequent search were not enough.

Trap raps:

"We knew about Kim Kardashian/And how Dick Cheney's shooting was an accident/And how America's become so passionate/Except when it come to young, black Africans."

While he's at it, Trap also has some tough words for Sheriff Joe Arpio, stating that the Sheriff "ain't saying shit."

Listen behind the break.

Great song and what a sad but true reality.The mother was beating her and killed her own child.This country is pro life but i feel the mom should get the same treatment she was given to the child.Beat her,put her in a closet,kill her and dump her body in a field and then refuse to say what happen when she comes up missing. May the little girl soul rest in peace in heaven.
