Marshawn Lynch does what he does for his hood.
The Seattle Seahawks running back gave a moving speech to the people in his hood at a rap concert at Oakland. The message was clear: I’m representing out here for y’all, but stop killing each other.
Beast Mode tells the crowd he’s extremely proud to “represent where I’m from on the national mother f**king stage” … but says, “I’ve been losing too many of ya’ll.”
Marshawn is obviously referring to the fact that Oakland is consistently ranked among the most dangerous cities in the country … and had the 2nd highest rate of violent crime in 2014.
“We need to be here for each other,” Lynch said … who also explained why it’s IMPERATIVE that the young people hear his message.
Lynch has been criticized for his dislike of the press, but it’s clear that when he has something to say, it’s truly important.
