Kendrick Lamar Had The Perfect Response To Geraldo Rivera’s Criticism

'Hip-hop is not the problem. Our reality is.'

This week, Kendrick Lamar has celebrated the release of his acclaimed “Alright” music video. He’s also had to field less positive reactions, such as Geraldo Rivera’s criticism of the track’s lyrics.

On Thursday (July 2), K. Dot responded to the criticism with his own message for Rivera.

“How can you take a song that’s about hope and turn it into hatred?” he said in an interview with TMZ Live. “The message, the overall message [of ’Alright’], is, ’We gon’ be alright.’ It’s not a message of ‘I want to kill people.’”
