J. Cole, Diddy, Jeezy & More March On 20th Anniversary Of The Million Man March
Hip-hop stars march in Washington D.C. on the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March.
Today, October 10, thousands gathered in Washington D.C. for the Justice Or Else march, which comes on the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March, led by Minister Louis Farrakhan, who also led today's march. Many of hip-hop's elite, including Diddy, Jeezy, Snoop Dogg, J. Cole, Ty Dolla $ign, and Jay Electronica, showed up to walk and show solidarity in the fight against police violence.
Howard University's The Hilltop also reported that there were crowds chanting the chorus of Kendrick Lamar's "Alright" while they walked.

A crowd chanted the same lyrics, "We gon' be alright," earlier this year in Cleveland, after police had arrested a 14-year-old black male.
