don't shoot

The death of Michael Brown (pictured), an African-American 18-year-old unarmed youth who was senselessly executed on August 9th by Darren Wilson, a White cop, was not in vain. The Brown incident, which struck a chord in countless folks across the country, has a stirred the rap community to come to arms with their microphones against the strong-arm tactics of law enforcement. Gangsta rapper The Game enlisted the help of creme de la creme rappers and R&B singers to show their support in the wake of the shooting by collaborating on “Don’t Shoot.”

The Game is joined on the powerful track by such A-listers as Sean “Diddy” Combs, 2 Chainz, Fabolous, Wale, Rick Ross, Swizz Beats, Yo Gotti, Curren$y, Problem, King Pharaoh, and TGT (consisting of Tyrese, Ginuwine, and Tank).

Brown’s death spawned protests and vigils not only in Ferguson but in cities throughout the nation as people called for justice and an end to senseless police killings. The Game, whose actual name is Jayceon Taylor, reportedly wants to bring awareness to mind-numbing killings like Brown’s, telling Rolling Stone, “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.”

“Don’t Shoot” is available on iTunes and its proceeds are going to the Michael Brown Memorial Fund.
