VIDEO: Snoop & More Talk Gun Violence at the BET Hip-Hop Awards
Uncle Snoop and non-profit grassroots organization the League of Young Voters, brought their "No Guns Allowed" anti-gun violence campaign to the star-studded "green carpet" at the 2013 BET Hip-Hop Awards in Atlanta.
Watch the "No Guns Allowed" Green Carpet recap below!
The League's street team hit the carpet and asked hip-hop's elite to discuss practical solutions to gun violence. Key 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, it is also important to recognize that rappers can use their celebrity to influence change on issues that negatively affect our communities. In honor of Uncle Snoop hosting tonight's highly-anticipated 2013 BET Hip-Hop Awards, it would be great if you could share this "No Guns Allowed" recap video with your readers today. The visual includes these compelling celebrity and tastemaker drops which ideate around preventative gun violence measures.
