Game Explains Making "Don't Shoot" Song With Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Diddy & Others

"I am a Black man with kids of my own that I love more than anything," Game says, "and I cannot fathom a horrific tragedy like Michael Brown's happening to them."

Game released today (August 27) “Don’t Shoot,” a song in response the shooting of Michael Brown that features Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Diddy, Fabolous, Wale, DJ Khaled, Swizz Beatz, Yo Gotti, Curren$y, Problem, King Pharaoh & TGT. 

Brown, who was 18 and Black, was unarmed when he was shot and killed by a White police officer August 9 in Ferguson, Missouri.

"The issues in Ferguson really hit home for me and I feel compelled to use my musical platform to address this,” Game says in a statement. "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. 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 Game’s “Don’t Shoot” on HipHopDX here.

Proceeds from the song will be going to the Justice for Mike Brown charity, according to a press release.

    The Game Explains Making "Don't Shoot" Song With Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Diddy & Others Game: G-Unit is back so i need some attention. if this song was really dedicated to michael brown from the bottom of games heart then it wouldn't be selling on itunes smh. fake ass rappers do anything for money smh. i didn't hear game say once he was going to donate the funds to the brown family so obviously that's not his intentions because if it was he would have told tmz like he always does because hes an attention seeker.

    I love to see HipHoppers unified over something positive about the community, plus it pisses off the pieces of shit who cheer for negativity. I hope Michael Browns parents get justice.

    Does everyone forget the part that he just robbed a store? If he didnt do that we would be grieving over someone who was wrong in the first place. Now these rappers are gonna stop the violence but continue it a week later? Get the fuck outta here. Only reason why this is news is because hes black. Lets not kid ourselves here. Lets keep playing the race card

      "White skinned people are albino mutant Neanderthals " As soon as I read this far I realized Bruthadee the middle aged racist trollnerd was writing another essay about those devilish white folk AGAIN. LMFAO. Thanks broski I needed a good laugh.

      White skinned people are albino mutant Neanderthals so you can't expect them to have compassion or understanding for people of color. Whites are a minority on this planet with recessive genes so their fear of genetic annihilation through miscegenation cause them to have an irrational hatred for yellow, red, brown and black people who have dominate genes and can eliminate them off the planet simply by miscegenation. The Lepor colored albino mutants can only survive as a species on this planet if they have intercourse with other Lepor colored albino mutants or else their offspring will be have "color" and be considered non-white....this is what Hitler went to war with the world over and the reason why white supremacist groups have millions of members. These albinos are the enemies of humanity and the accursed of the earth.

      White folks stay false flagging, this could only come from a person who's ancestors took pictures with black people tied to a tree as they smiled like they just caught a deer, a people who enslaved a group of people for 500 years, a people who killed 59,800 Native American, only a descendent of a Slave Master would leave a comment like this, we know you and you just don't know how you are, the sad thing is you don't know yourself and why you think the way you do.. Google Tim Wise and Jane Elliotte and fix yourself because you were lied to your whole life..

    The irony of making a song called "Don't Shoot" with a former correctional officer who took an oath to shoot any inmate trying to escape, including young black men who were concicted of selling cocaine like he raps about.

      Bruthadee caught feelings hard AGAIN. I think he must be a C.O. himself who searches young inmates bootyholes for drugs.

      Cambridge's police reports says that she was having an argument with The Game when the altercation turned physical. The rapper allegedly hit her in the face repeatedly, "injuring her eye socket and breaking her nose."

      and you're a Game groupie/stan/whatever. the fuck difference does it make if her report didnt go too far? he probably (surely) made her pull it back, perhaps with threats or more violence, so that it wouldn't fuck up whatever joke of a career this clown azz has left, and so that it wouldnt fuck up her own life situation or that of the children.

      Where you there to say its true? U dont even know the clothes they had on that day yet u know that? Funny. Cuz according to her she had a broken nose but none of the pictures she has posted since that day proved it & the report didnt go too far either because she didnt have enough proof/lied about it, or she pulled it back. So i just like how u know its true. Tell me what the situation with Solange & JayZ really was about? Faggot.

      Or maybe they could make songs about shooting white people like you in the face along with your racist police friends and your Hate group members....but a pitiful white bitch like you will still worship Black males along with your white mother and sister who crave a big Black dick in their pink pussies.
