The Game has enlisted the help of all-star hip hop hitters from around the U.S. Rappers from every region: from West to East , and North to south join in on one musical protest track titled ‘Don’t Shoot’. The social conscience track is in response to the shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson Missouri. The track includes Game , Diddy , Rick Ross , 2 Chainz , Fabolous , Wale , DJ Khaled , Swizz Beatz , Yo Gotti , Curren$y , Problem , King Pharoah and the R&B super-group TGT (Tyrese , Ginuwine and Tank).

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

“I managed to get everyone on board fairly easy, simply because we have the hearts,” says the Game. “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.”

Listen to the song below, and buy it here. The money raised from its iTunes sales will go straight to the Justice for Mike Brown GoFundMe account.

The title ‘Don’t shoot’ were Mike Brown’s last words before he was killed.
