The Game - Don't Shoot ft. Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Diddy, Fabolous, Wale, DJ Khaled, Swizz Beatz, Yo Gotti, Curren$y, Problem, King Pharaoh and TGT

The rap community is quite fast to jump on black rights to getting stepped on. A collective of a who's-who in rap on one track with proceeds going to the Justice for Mike Brown charity.

Now what is happening in America, or in the world in general, with respect to race relations and the militarization of law enforcement is a bit despicable. But what we need not forget is that in the case of Ferguson, it was the act of the government represented by a single human who took it upon himself to kill another unarmed human who was on his knees and had his hands in the air. 6 shots to an unarmed human by the organization that is selected by the government and paid for by that human's tax money. The same force that is suppose to serve and protect is the same force that failed that human being's rights and ended that poor young man's life. This is a step on human rights. Forget the entire race thing for a second.

Alright I stopped there. I could rant on but you're hearing a lot of it already within the media. I don't know how to be with respect to all the travesty in the world. With Gaza tensions at an all time high due to the military occupation, to the genocides occurring in the Middle East, to the Ebola outbreak (alongside a plethora of social and economic issues) in Africa to the issues withe the environment and the list goes on and on and on...it's tough to find solace. Just do me a favor, next time you see your loved ones. Hug them. Let them know you love them. Let them know that they are important to you and have made an everlasting impact on your life. With respect to everything else, I always think back to what my man Mikee told me once. "Look outside, it's beautiful. The sun is shining through a cloudy day. The air is fresh. We live in an awesome world. Look outside, it's beautiful."
