The League's street team hit the carpet and asked hip-hop's elite to discuss practical solutions to gun violence. Key, relevant figures in the game such as Nelly, Rich Homie Quan, Lil Scrappy, radio personality Angela Yee, and Snoop himself, all contributed their voices to the cause and provided thoughtful insight on this pressing issue that continues to plague our nation.While we prep for a night of entertainment hosted by our beloved and infectious Uncle Snoop, it is also important to recognize how rappers can use their celebrity to influence change on issues that negatively affect our communities.
