In the height of the Mike Brown shooting this past weekend Jeezy dedicated his Tuesday night (Aug. 12) performance in St. Louis to the slain teen by donning a black t-shirt that said “R.I.P. Michael Brown.” After hitting the stage he posted a photo on Instagram with a caption that read, “St.Louis was Luv!! #justiceformichaelbrown #saveourchildren.”
The tragic death of 18-year-old Missouri teen comes on the heels of the Travyon Martin and Eric Garner. The fact that the young man was killed at the hand of a police officer has only heightened emotions in the African-American community.
