The Game's "Don't Shoot" Is One Of The Most Important Songs You'll Hear All Day
Featuring top rappers like Rick Ross and 2 Chainz, "Don't Shoot" is a protest song inspired by the Ferguson tragedy
Whenever a civil rights movement takes place in society, there is a protest song that speaks for the people who are fighting for their freedom. You may have heard of the uproar that has come out of the small town of Ferguson, MO as of late: a young African-American boy, Michael Brown, was shot and killed unjustly by police, and the city as well as the country is showing that they will not allow this kind of brutality to continue. Racism is still alive and well in the US, as well as throughout the world, and rapper The Game reached out to a solid handful of some of hip-hop's finest to record the track "Don't Shoot."
God ain't put us on the Earth to get murdered, it's murder / Don't point your weapons at me, says the song's strong chorus sung by TGT. Listen to the track off Soundcloud above, and hope for change during this revolutionary period in the modern world.
