Since Thanksgiving is right around the corner, Big Sean headed back to his hometown of Detroit to make sure that the less fortunate were taken care of. Thanks to him and his nonprofit organization, the Sean Anderson Foundation, turkeys and canned goods were given to 1,000 people at Detroit’s River Rouge High School at their second annual turkey drive. From the looks of the pictures and video, Sean and co. put smiles on many people’s faces.

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.
No value for black life. But they extrapolate our magic , sweat, our voice our fire… And leave us stripped of our right to exist

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.
