The Game and Snoop Dogg are Working to Unite Gangs in Los Angeles
The Game and Snoop Dogg came together and marched for change last week in Los Angeles, and now the West Coast rap stars want to take things a step further and invite L.A. gangs to come together. Game announced today (July 14) on Instagram that he and Snoop are calling for a town hall meeting called “Time To Unite: United Hoods + Gangs Nation,” which is scheduled to take place at this Sunday (July 17) at 11 a.m. PST on Vermont Street in Los Angeles.
"On behalf of myself @SnoopDogg, & the honorable @louisfarrakhan I want to extend the invitation to all CRIPS, BLOODS, ESE's & all other gang members, major figures & GANG LEADERS from every hood in our city as well as the surrounding cities to our meeting," The Game captioned in the post.
"Because the sad truth that no one wants to face is, before we can get OUR LIVES TO MATTER to anyone else... We have to show that OUR LIVES MATTER to US !!!!" he also wrote. "WE have been responsible for more of the KILLING of ourselves than anyone else by a long shot & the percentages in which BLACK on BLACK, BLACK on BROWN, BROWN on BLACK, BROWN on BROWN murders are so fucking high verses any other killing of us that it is disgusting & this needs to be addressed & laid to rest !!!!!"
On June 8, Game and Snoop led a peaceful H.U.N.T (HATE US NOT TODAY & HUNT US NOT TODAY) march in downtown Los Angeles to draw attention to police violence against black citizens. He explained the goal of the march a few days prior. “Objective: to make the Californian government & it’s law branches aware that from today forward, we will be UNIFIED as minorities & we will no longer allow them to hunt us or be hunted by us!!!” he wrote. “Let’s erase the fear of one another on both sides & start something new here in the city of Los Angeles.”
