The Game & Diddy Create Song For Michael Brown

In keeping  with hip-hop’s tradition of standing united in difficult times, many of the culture’s MC’s united for a song in honor of deceased teen Michael Brown.

Essence.com reports that the anthem, titled “Don’t Shoot” is the brainchild of rapper The Game, who personally felt the impact of Brown’s death in relation to his own family.

“The issues in Ferguson really hit home for me, and I feel compelled to use my musical platform to address this,” The Game told 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.”

In addition to Diddy and Swizz Beatz and the Game, “Don’t Shoot” features Rick Ross2 ChainzFabolousWaleDJ KhaledYo GottiCurren$yProblemKing Pharaoh and TGT (TyreseGinuwine and Tank). All sales from the newly released song, which was released on iTunes Wednesday, will be donated to Justice for Mike Brown GoFundMe account.
