August 27, 2014

Roused by the recent shooting of the unarmed teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO, Compton rapper and father of three The Game has released a tribute called "Don't Shoot." Money raised from its iTune's sales will go to the Justice for Michael Brown GoFundMe account, and so to sweeten the deal he's enlisted more than a dozen friends -- Rick Ross2 ChainzDiddyFabolousWaleDJ KhaledSwizz BeatzYo GottiCurren$yProblemKing Pharaoh, and the R&B supergroup TGT -- to join him on the sprawling, six-plus-minute track. They make for a deep and diverse crew, and each brings his own perspective; but they stand united, against injustice and by heart. "I managed to get everyone on board fairly easy, simply because we have the hearts," Game told Rolling Stone, who premiered the track. "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."
