Alton Sterling is the latest name to be made into a hashtag after the 37-year-old man was shot and killed by police as he sold CDs outside a convenience store in Baton Rouge.
Many in Hip Hop mourned Sterling’s death as another victim of police brutality. Some called for true action beyond social media. Others expressed sadness, disbelief and anger.
Sterling’s death comes after Hip Hop rallied around the families of Michael Brown, Walter Scott, Tamir Rice, Samuel Dubose and others who were killed by police officers without the proper protocol being followed.

Angry tweets, marching, protesting,none of that shit works. We have to speak economically. We generate BILLIONS, and retain none of it.
