Chicago currently has a  gun violence epidemic. If music can motivate someone to pick up a gun, it can inspire them to put a gun down is the logic behind “Put the Guns Down” This concept,song,and visual was organized by Chicago Ideas, Leo Burnett, and the producer of the track  The Twilite Tone. Some of Chicago’s best emcees  like Common, King Louie, Lil Herb, Katie Got Bandz, Saba, Tree, No Name Gypsy, Mic Terror & Nick Jr. of Treated Crew came together to spit these bars for a great cause and hopefully save a life.

Go to  now to add your own verse and find out more about the movement.  Today Chicago,tomorrow every hood worldwide will hopefully try to embrace this mind set.  #SAVEOURSELVES
