Following last Friday’s acquittal of the three NYPD officers who fired fatal shots at 23-year-old Sean Bell, an abundance of tribute songs have been created, many of which focus on the injustice of the trial’s outcome. In addition to tracks done by New York rappers Joell Ortiz and Grafh, SoCal representative (and known police antagonist) The Game also provides his opinion on the matter with 911 Is A Joke (Cop Killa). Channeling legendary West Coast group N.W.A., Game offers up a F**k The Police type song that shows the growing distrust the urban community has for law enforcement agencies. 911 Is A Joke (Cop Killa) can be downloaded for free at The Game’s website.
