The Game, Rick Ross, Diddy, and More Team Up on Ferguson Protest Song “Don’t Shoot”
The hip-hop community has been vocal about the outrages that have occurred in Ferguson, Missouri, over the past month following the fatal police shooting of unarmed teen Michael Brown. In addition to tweets and songs, you have guys like Killer Mike, penning an op-ed for Billboard and appearing on CNN to discuss race in America. And now West Coast rapper The Game is raising money by assembling a squad of rappers, singers, and one DJ Khaled representing regions all across America for the protest song "Don't Shoot."
Diddy, Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Diddy, Fabolous, Wale, DJ Khaled, Swizz Beatz, Yo Gotti, Curren$y, Problem, King Pharaoh and R&B group TGT (Tyrese, Ginuwine, and Tank) all appear on the track. "I managed to get everyone on board fairly easy, simply because we have the hearts," The Game told Rolling Stone. "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."
