In light of the tragic killing of Michael Brown and the aftermath in the city of Ferguson, The Game is using his influential voice in Hip Hop to make a difference.
The West Coast MC united with 10 other rappers and four R&B singers on the protest track, “Don’t Shoot”. Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Diddy, Fabolous, Wale, DJ Khaled, Swizz Beatz, Yo Gotti, Curren$y, Problem, King Pharaoh and R&B super-group TGT (Tyrese, Ginuwine and Tank), teamed up with Game to hopefully make a difference.
The “Jesus Piece” rapper sat down with Rolling Stone to discuss his feelings about Michael Brown. “The issues in Ferguson really hit home for me, and I feel compelled to use my musical platform to address this,” Game stated. “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. 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.”
Jayceon, the rapper’s legal name, also explained how the track came about. “I managed to get everyone on board fairly easy, simply because we have the hearts,” he said. “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 below, and purchase it on iTunes. The money raised from the sales will go to the Justice for Mike Brown GoFundMe account.
