Civil Rights Leaders Call For Reward Fund In Rap Artist Killing

 

LOS ANGELES - Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable President Earl Ofari Hutchinson and Los Angeles Civil Rights Assn. President Eddie Jones today called on the top Rap recording artists and performers to establish a reward fund to aid authorities in their efforts to capture the killers of Rap artist Montae Talbert.

Civil rights leaders and Talbert family members have also called on the city of Inglewood to issue a reward.

 

“The rap industry is a lucrative industry and many of its top performers have spoken out and lent their talents and financial support to social causes in the past,” says Hutchinson and Jones, “Setting up a reward fund to aid police and investigators in the apprehension of Talbert’s killer(s) will send a strong message that the name figures among rap artists are determined to do their part to counter violence within the rap community.”
