At a charity basketball game, Nelly asked everyone in attendance to stand in solidarity in honor of what’s happening in Missouri, Nelly’s home state. Some of the celebrities in attendance were Lil Mama, Bow Wow, Chris Brown, Wale, Trey Songz and more.

Here’s what Nelly stated in L.A. at the basketball game:

“If I could get everybody to rise and just raise their hands in support for everything that’s going on back home in my city right now at this minute. If anybody can sympathize with what my city is going through, it’s this city of L.A. right now. On so many levels.”
