Update: The Game and Charlie Beck have teamed up again for a “Stop the Violence” PSA. Watch the two promote peace in L.A. neighborhoods below:

Over the weekend in L.A., The Game teamed up with Snoop Dogg and Problem for a peace treaty between the Bloods and Crips. Inspired by the death of his foster brother, The Game used this anti violence summit as a way to bring men together for the call to action. “You know, it’s like a bus going through the city, a bus of love and a bus of positivity,” he told The Associated Press. “We want to keep the doors open. We want everybody get on the bus.”

Police Chief Charlie Beck mentioned that the summit was the first big step in tackling violence in their community.

We hope more rappers continue to join forces to honor police brutality victims and seek peace in their communities. Checkout footage from the peaceful summit below:

Good morning world. I hope everyone slept well….. Los Angeles, on behalf of myself @SnoopDogg, & the honorable @louisfarrakhan I want to extend the invitation to all CRIPS, BLOODS, ESE's & all other gang members, major figures & GANG LEADERS from every hood in our city as well as the surrounding cities to our meeting 11am this morning, July 17th at 8039 S. Vermont Ave Los Angeles, California 90044 to have the much needed conversation amongst ourselves about our influence on the youth in our respective neighborhoods & how we can serve as better role models to them & the brothers we stand beside daily…. Because the sad truth that no one wants to face is, before we can get OUR LIVES TO MATTER to anyone else… We have to show that OUR LIVES MATTER to US !!!! WE have been responsible for more of the KILLING of ourselves than anyone else by a long shot & the percentages in which BLACK on BLACK, BLACK on BROWN, BROWN on BLACK, BROWN on BROWN murders are so fucking high verses any other killing of us that it is disgusting & this needs to be addressed & laid to rest !!!!! Don't think we can't change it & better ourselves, lead by example & make our city a safer place for our children…. Because together, WE CAN !!!! I'm asking everyone who will attend: DO NOT bring any weapons or anything illegal. Do not come high or belligerent.. We don't need any HOT HEADS or anyone there for the wrong reasons or you will respectfully dealt with & REMOVED from the building… We will stand as we are, UNIFIED. I'm calling ALL GANGS, of ALL RACES, ALL GROWN MEN affiliated or not & WE WILL STAND UNIFIED SUNDAY !!!! Our numbers are all the weapons we need !!! We do not need to be dumb, retarded or uncivilized Sunday… ALL WE NEED IS EACH OTHER… I will not lead any of you into a trap !!!!! LET'S do the opposite of what we've been doing & show the world that we are MORE than the problem… Thank you – Game
