The Obvious Response To The Michael Brown Tragedy

This is perfect (by "perfect", I mean horrible, obviously).  The first thing I thought about after I parsed through all of the facts involved in Ferguson was "What does DJ Khaled have to say about this?"  Thankfully, I will get my answer along with the answers from roughly 28 other rappers.
