This would have been AH-mazing!

Back in April, the city of Baltimore was experiencing protest in the wake of Freddie Gray's death at the hands of city police officers.

While many celebrities showed their support through social media, it's been reported that Rihanna wanted to hold a free concert for the city of Baltimore — and even walk with protesters!

Emails between RiRi's rep and the Baltimore police indicate that the 27-year-old tried to get extra police security at the request of the governor's office.

But a separate email chain between the former police commissioner and the mayor's rep suggest that the songstress's request was ultimately denied because "police are claiming they have no permit so it will not be allowed."

While the BBHMM singer's concert didn't get approved, Prince performed a Rally 4 Peace benefit show in Baltimore in early May.

We can only imagine if RiRi joined forces with Prince on stage, it would have been a concert of epic proportions!

Now, the tune Baltimore is released on SoundCloud, which according to a spokeswoman for the singer:

"Addresses the unrest in Baltimore and the socio-political issues around the country in the wake of a slew of killings of young black men."

Last month, Freddie Gray died from a spinal cord injury while in police custody, igniting protests and riots in the city of Baltimore. Though the song is a call for peace and reflection, the singer declares in the lyrics:

"If there ain't no justice then there ain't no peace."

Baltimore Police WILL Be Charged With Homicide For Freddie Gray's Death

Filed under: Legal MattersSad Sad

no title

After weeks of unrest in Baltimore, sparked by the death of Freddie Gray while in police custody, it looks like protesters may finally be getting a modicum of the justice they seek.

Baltimore's Chief prosecutor Marilyn Mosby announced Friday morning that the police WILL be held responsible for Gray's death.

The 25-year-old suffered a spinal injury during his April 12 arrest, and Mosby says officers' failure to get him necessary medical attention OR to explain why he was being arrested OR how he received the injury were sufficient to warrant criminal charges.

A single officer faces second degree murder (depraved indifference) charges, while the others are being charged with manslaughter, second-degree assault, misconduct in office, and false imprisonment.

See the passionate announcement and its intense reaction (below)!
