The Bompton (Compton) rapper YG Addresses Critics After Shooting 'FTP' Video at Protest
The revolution will be televised
YG was joined by Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors, along with other celebrities including Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Lopez, A-Rod, Machine Gun Kelly, Vanessa Hudgens, Karrueche Tran, and Marlon Wayans.
“The real story here is me and Black Lives Matter brought out 50,000 people today to peacefully protest and unite for change. I wanted to document that so when they hear this song and think we are reckless and violent they see a peaceful protest of all different people coming together for a common cause. That is history. That is breaking down these stereotypes on our people and our neighborhoods.”
He added, “All of us protesting are on the same side here..instead of questioning each other’s activism we should be directing that energy at the cops and the government and helping to create the change we want to see. Stay focused and stop that social media judgement without knowing facts and hurting a cause we all a part of. We got a real enemy and it ain’t each other. On my momma!”
