Wale, after speaking with local high school students, marched alongside them to Baltimore's City Hall. Joey Bada$$ (as well as members of his Pro Era crew) joined Russell Simmons' protest in New York's Union Square, marching with protestors through the city in a show of solidarity with the citizens of Baltimore. He was spotted leading chants like "Who's the deadliest gang? N-Y-P-D."
