(AllHipHop News) “Hip-Hop is not the problem. Our reality is the problem of the situation,” Kendrick told TMZ Live. Responding to the Geraldo Rivera’s questionable belief that “Hip-Hop is more damaging to young African-American kids than racism,” the good kid, went on to say, “This is our music; this is us expressing ourselves. Rather than going out here and doing the murders myself, I want to express myself in a positive light the same way other artists are doing. Not going out in the streets, but going in the booth and talking about the situation.”

On Monday evening (June 29), Geraldo Rivera, visited Fox News’ “The Five” and delivered his views of the TDE lyricist’s 2015 BET performance of “Alright.” The right-wing conservative firmly asserted that K. Dot standing on the hood of a defaced cop car and his lyrics “are not helpful, to say the least,” and the scathing critique went on to contend that, “Hip-Hop has done more damage to young African-Americans than racism in recent years.”

”How can you hear a song about hope and turn it into hatred,” Kendrick asks the million dollar question. Check out the video and leave a comment.
