SINGLE: The Game - Don't Shoot (Dedication To Mike Brown)

The Game has teamed up with quite the motley crew of rappers for what might possibly be the most important songs of this generation with "Don't Shoot," a tribute to the merciless killing of Mike Brown by police in Ferguson, Missouri. Alongside Game there is at least a verse, hook, or adlib from Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Diddy, Fabolous, Wale, DJ Khaled, Swizz Beatz, Yo Gotti, Curren$y, Problem, King Pharaoh & TGT. Normally, you wouldn't expect to hear half of these artists on a track like this, but it's good to know they are aware of the impact and reach their voices have upon society. Not since "The West Coast Rap All-Stars - We're All In The Same Gang" have we seen so many artists in Hip-hop come together on a song to uplift the urban community and/or to raise global awareness of police brutality. In the society we live in, justice for Mike Brown might seem like a far-fetched goal, but these artists using the tools they were given to raise awareness is an enormous leap in the right direction. Down the line, hopefully this song will inspire other artists to take a stand and speak up on issues plaguing the urban community when they happen. Because at the end of the day, we all we got.
