In light of the tragic killing of Michael Brown and the aftermath in the city of Ferguson, The Game is using his influential voice in Hip Hop to make a difference.

The West Coast MC united with 10 other rappers and four R&B singers on the protest track, “Don’t Shoot”. Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Diddy, Fabolous, Wale, DJ Khaled, Swizz Beatz, Yo Gotti, Curren$y, Problem, King Pharaoh and R&B super-group TGT (Tyrese, Ginuwine and Tank), teamed up with Game to hopefully make a difference.

The “Jesus Piece” rapper sat down with Rolling Stone to discuss his feelings about Michael Brown. “The issues in Ferguson really hit home for me, and I feel compelled to use my musical platform to address this,” Game stated. “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.”

Jayceon, the rapper’s legal name, also explained how the track came about. “I managed to get everyone on board fairly easy, simply because we have the hearts,” he said. “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 purchase it on iTunes. The money raised from the sales will go to the Justice for Mike Brown GoFundMe account.

Music’s most amazing night went down Sunday at the Microsoft Theater in L.A. and we have to say the night was all about the ladies!

That’s right the 45th American Music Awards had some major moments and some major girl power starting with Pink and Kelly Clarkson.

The duo got the show started singing R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts”, but it was their solo performances that had fans going nuts.

Kelly Clarkson returned to the stage and had everyone on their feet with a medley of her classic tracks and new single “Love So Soft.”

While Pink took her career to new heights leaping off the side of a building while performing her hit single “Beautiful Trauma.”

Christina Aguilera, paid tribute to Whitney Houston with a commemorative performance for the 25th anniversary of The Bodyguard.

But the #Majah moment of the night had to be Diana Ross. The Motown legend was given the Lifetime Achievement Award, and performed some of her greatest hits before accepting the honor.
