The Game has joined the Los Angeles Police Department in creating an outreach campaign aimed at putting an end to the violence between young black men.
The Game, alongside rapper Snoop Dogg, has been making headlines in recent months for promoting peace and unity.
He took it a step further this week by joining forces with the LAPD for an outreach campaign designed to put an end to all of the violence among young black men.
In a 48 second PSA, The Game accompanies LAPD Chief Charlie Beck in asking people to make the change they want to see in the world, and to stop all of the senseless violence.
The video starts out with some disturbing statistics about gun violence.
According to the chief, almost 1,000 people were shot in Los Angeles last year, with about 300 of them killed. Beck goes on to state that 80 percent of the victims and 80 percent of the shooters were young men of colour.
Next, both the chief and rapper implore viewers to put a stop to the violence wreaking havoc in Los Angeles.
"Humanity, it has to resurface," The Game continues.
This is the first video in the #StopTheViolence campaign. The new movement is planning to invite other celebrities to join them in promoting the concept of peace and unity.
