"In 60 minutes, $7000 which is a generous contribution from people who don't have to give anything," announced Game. "We grew up in this city, so at the end of the day we kind of feel obligated. So I'm gonna keep on raising money."
The Jesus Piece rapper also revealed that he has managed to broker a "Cease-Fire L.A." campaign with the city's gangs for the holiday season. Game says the short-term goal will be reevaluated at the top of year and beyond.
Authorities have not arrested anyone for the shooting yet. The suspects have only been described as four black males in black hoodies last seen in a white vehicle. Talib's mother and the man in the car were also hit, but are reported to be okay.
