Geraldo Rivera Responds To Kendrick Lamar’s Lyrics On “DAMN.”
by Mike Winslow
(AllHipHop News) Kendrick made his issues with Rivera known on three different times on the album including “BLOOD,” “DNA” and “YAH.”
The whole spat started after Rivera was offended by Kendrick’s controversial performance, and exclaimed that “hip-hop has done more damage to young African-American men” than racism has.
Geraldo got wind of the fact that he’s included on such a high-profile album, and responded to Kendrick’s lyrics on his Facebook page.
“Kendrick Lamar, he’s the best of them, like I said. The others far more egregious, with them, indoctrinating young people with the message that the cops are the enemy, that there’s no good way to get ahead,” Geraldo Rivera said.
Even though it’s been over two years since Geraldo made his initial comments about Kendrick’s performance, the veteran anchorman doesn’t seem to have changed his position much.
“I have no beef with Kendrick Lamar, anyone else in the business, but if you don’t have a positive attitude, you’re dooming yourself to a life that you profess to despise,” Geraldo Rivera said.
