Macklemore & Q-Tip March In Mike Brown's Honor; August Alsina Cries Over No Indictment Decision

Last night’s decision by a grand jury to not indict officer Darren Wilson on charges in the shooting death of 18-year-old Mike Brown caused an uproar and a new wave of riots in Ferguson. However, people in Ferguson were not the only ones affected. As they rioted through the streets, rappers Q-Tip and Mackelmore participated in peaceful marches while August Alsina shed tears at the realization that it could have been him.

When a TMZ reporter spoke to Macklemore, he said “It’s not about me. It’s about Mike Brown.”

Q-Tip lead a peaceful march through Times Square in New York City while also releasing his frustrations via Twitter.
