A few other fellow protesters captured glimpses of the rapper marching in solidarity with the rest of the city.

But the rapper did update his Twitter feed twice to reference the Darren Wilson verdict:

The system that instills & protects white supremacy wins again. Humanity loses...No justice. I pray for Mike Brown & his family. So sad.
