A slew of hip-hop heavyweights, including Rick Ross, Diddy and Game, have come together for the Michael Brown tribute song "Don't Shoot."
The track, which also features 2 Chainz, Fabolous, Wale, Swizz Beats, Yo Gotti,Problem, King Pharaoh and TGT, features the chorus, "Time to take a stand and save our future/ Like we all got shot, we all got shot/ Throwing up our hands/ Don't let 'em shoot us."
In his verse, Fabolous raps, "I seen a lotta ice water tossed, and I know it’s for a cause/ My only question is: What we doin’ for the loss?/ Shot down, with his hands up/ That’s what occurred?/ Man, that sound absurd/ Matter of fact, to me, that sound like murder.”
The track is available for sale on iTunes. Proceeds will go to a fund to support Brown's family.

TeeRoy's 2 Cents:
- Interesting mix of rappers. Not like the old days where songs like this were either all East Coast or West Coast.
- Do more rappers need to speak out in song?
- Should Jay-Z and Drake do something?
- Unfortunately, the people who support the cop will look at Game, Rick Ross and the rest and just see gangstas.
