FILE In this Aug. 20, 2014 file photo taken with a long exposure, protesters march in the street as lightning flashes in the distance in Ferguson, Mo. On Aug. 9, a white police officer fatally shot unarmed Michael Brown, a black 18-year-old, in the St. Louis suburb. Rappers, like Talib Kweli, J. Coyle, and Lauryn Hill and others, are making their voices heard in song and on the ground in Ferguson, Missouri, in the wake of Mike Brown’s death, channeling hip-hop’s earlier roots when the genre worked as a voice for the oppressed and spoke out against injustice.
