An estimated 60,000 protesters walked the streets of New York City on Saturday (December 13) to combat the racial injustice exhibited in the Michael Brown and Eric Garner cases. REVOLT were among the crowd, and had a chance to speak with respective Hip-Hop legends Nas and Russell Simmons.

“It’s the culmination and beginning of—at the same time—a lot of hard work and the beginning of a shift, and I know for sure that there’ll be a change in the way the police police the police,” Simmons said. The Def Jam founder spoke more candidly on how he plans to aid with the implementation of said change while speaking at NYC’s City Hall days prior.

Nas kept his words short and sweet: “This is beautiful, man. We need justice, that’s why we here.”
