If you have been keeping up with the Michael Brown shooting which happened in Ferguson, Missouri, you will find interest in this.
In the wake of the shooting, The Game has recruited a group of 10 rappers and four R&B artists. As they come together they protest on a musical Molotov “Don’t Shoot.”
The song by The Game features Diddy, Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Fabolous, Wale, DJ Khaled, Swizz Beatz, Yo Gotti, Curren$y, Problem, King Pharaoh and the R&B super-group TGT (Tyrese, Ginuwine and Tank).
In an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine, The game says, “The issues in Ferguson really hit home for me, and I feel compelled to use my musical platform to address this.”
“I am a black man with kids of my own that I love more than anything, and I cannot fathom a horrific tragedy like Michael Brown’s happening to them,” he added. “This possibility has shaken me to my core. That is why this song must be made and why it was so easy for so many of my friends to come together and unite against the injustice.”
In a show of solidarity, the rappers on the track are a Pan-American show.
“I managed to get everyone on board fairly easy, simply because we have the hearts,” stated the game. “We care and are inclined to take a positive approach to resolving an issue that has existed since the beginning of mankind and that is racism and hatred towards one another as human beings.”
Listen to the song and purchase it on iTunes, the money raised from the track will go to the Justice for Mike Brown GoFundMe account.
