Meghan O'Donnell, 29, from St. Louis, prays at the spot where Michael Brown was killed the previous afternoon, Sunday evening, Aug. 10, 2014, in Ferguson, Mo. Police said Brown, who was unarmed, was fatally shot Saturday in a scuffle with an officer. 

Rihanna, Katy Perry, Killer Mike, Q-Tip, Hayley Williams, Alicia Keys and many more speak out.

The death of Michael Brown has been a rallying cry in the hip-hop community since the unarmed teen was fatally shot in Ferguson, Mo., by a police officer back in August. Monday night (Nov. 24) was no different, as plenty of artists -- hip-hop and otherwise -- took to Twitter and Instagram to speak out about a grand jury's decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson in Brown's death.
