The Game and Snoop Dogg Took to the Streets of L.A. in Light of This Week’s Violence The two met with city officials in an emotional plea for peace.
Snoop Dogg and The Game have come together in a very important way. In the wake of the recent national outcry following the two separate fatal police shootings that occurred this week, resulting in the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, both legendary West Coast emcees met with the mayor of Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti, and LAPD Police Chief Charlie Beck in an emotionally-charged plea for peace.
The two rappers met downtown for a peace rally and also privately met with city officials to discuss what can be done, as well as to continue the conversation about the importance of uniting peacefully in protest in order to effectively advocate for the changes beyond long overdue in our country.
“This is how you make moves,” Snoop shared. “You make it happen. You get some dialogue and understanding with the new recruits before they hit the streets so that way they know that we just like them.”
After meeting behind closed doors, the city officials and the rappers stood together to continue spreading the word of their alliance together and pledge to impact the community positively.
“There’s a build up frustration,” Snoop continued. “You can’t answer hate with hate. You gotta answer hate with love. This is a love offering.”
Both he and the Game took to Instagram to further share their thoughts about their decision to be leaders of the #BlackLivesMatter movement in L.A. and to hit the streets in order to make an impact.
