The Game and Snoop Dogg are continuing their efforts towards creating a change in society, as yesterday [July 17, 2016] the two California rappers hosted a Gang Summit in L.A.
This event follows a rally the two held in the wake of recent fatal shootings by police, and they’re referring to their movement as “Time to Unite: United Hoods + Gangs Nation.”
On Sunday, Crips, Bloods and other gang members joined Snoop and The Game with the common goal of ending violence and promoting peace for the sake of the next generation growing up in a safer environment.
Nation of Islam Minister Tony Muhammad helped organize the event, and according to advertisements the event was also supported by Nation of Islam leader, Louis Farrakhan.
The Game shared a post on Instagram, urging gang affiliates and major figures to come out and join in the necessary discussion about the current state of our society.
Good morning world. I hope everyone slept well….. 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 11am this morning, July 17th at 8039 S. Vermont Ave Los Angeles, California 90044 to have the much needed conversation amongst ourselves about our influence on the youth in our respective neighborhoods & how we can serve as better role models to them & the brothers we stand beside daily…. 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 !!!! 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 !!!!! Don’t think we can’t change it & better ourselves, lead by example & make our city a safer place for our children…. Because together, WE CAN !!!! I’m asking everyone who will attend: DO NOT bring any weapons or anything illegal. Do not come high or belligerent.. We don’t need any HOT HEADS or anyone there for the wrong reasons or you will respectfully dealt with & REMOVED from the building… We will stand as we are, UNIFIED. I’m calling ALL GANGS, of ALL RACES, ALL GROWN MEN affiliated or not & WE WILL STAND UNIFIED SUNDAY !!!! Our numbers are all the weapons we need !!! We do not need to be dumb, retarded or uncivilized Sunday… ALL WE NEED IS EACH OTHER… I will not lead any of you into a trap !!!!!
