It’s no denying that The Game and Snoop Dogg are perhaps the most visibly diligent of the rappers promoting peace in wake of ongoing violence.

Following the police shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castille and the Dallas shooting recently, the West Coasters tackled another issue in the scope of gun violence in Los Angeles Sunday (July 17).

The Compton native spread the word via Instagram early Sunday morning, inviting gang leaders and member for an open dialogue on effort to increase peace within neighborhoods.

“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,” Game wrote.

Touted as a forum to have “the much needed conversation amongst ourselves about our influence on the youth in our respective neighborhoods,” Game didn’t shy away from what he called the “sad truth no one wants to face.”

“Before we can get OUR LIVES TO MATTER to anyone else… We have to show that OUR LIVES MATTER to US,” he wrote.
Even with short notice, Game and Snoop saw a good turnout. According to another Instagram post, they reached capacity.
