Earlier this week, Game had a meeting with Min. Louis Farrakhan to discuss the upcoming 20th anniversary of the Million Man March. The two are working together to lead a commemorative march in Washington, D.C., October 10.

"Spent the early part of my day with the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan getting a bit of spiritual enlightenment as well as preparation for our march on Washington, D.C.,” he wrote on Instagram. “This October 10th 2015 for the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March.... This time we're coming for #JusticeOrElse.”

The first Million Man March was held October 16, 1995, on the National Mall. A National Day of Atonement was established the day of the march, where Black men across the nation vowed to abstain from negative behaviors.

During an interview with the Breakfast Club this month, Minister Farrakhan shared why a new march is needed. “Today, we are at that point in our development where we are being forced now to consider which is the way forward,” he said. “Singing in, wading in, crying in, praying in has not worked. Marches have not worked. The oppression and the tyranny is getting worse, so we decided on the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March to return to the capital."
