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.

While on tour, August Alsina became emotional about the decision and shed tears after having a moment of silence. “I’m emotional ’cause I could’ve been that n---a that they killed,” he said trying to hold back tears.
