American rapper, record producer, and actor Ice T gave props to Calgary for its massive turnout to the Black Lives Matter march on June 3 following.

The march was one of many around the continent denouncing anti-Black racism, police brutality, and injustice following George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis after an officer kneeled on his neck, preventing him from breathing.

“Calgary! Pow!” Ice T tweeted Sunday along with a photo of the crowd.

Calgarians followed up the rally on June 3 with another Black Lives Matter vigil at Olympic Plaza on Saturday.
