The Hip-hop community reacts to Michael Brown Verdict

Outrage In Missouri Town After Police Shooting Of 18-Yr-Old Man

The grand jury’s decision not to file any criminal charges against Darren Wilson, the Ferguson police officer who killed unarmed teen Michael Brown, sent shockwaves throughout the country.
The hip-hop community including Diddy, The Game, and Big Sean cried out for justice on social media, B.o.B called for a Black Friday boycott, and Q-Tip and Macklemore marched in the streets.

Q-Tip stopped traffic on 7th Avenue and 34th Street in his native New York while leading his own peaceful protest. He asked, “Whose streets?” while the crowd responded, “Our streets.”

“No value for black life. But they extrapolate our magic, sweat, our voice our fire… And leave us stripped of our right to exist,” he tweeted.
