Geraldo Rivera Responds To Kendrick Lamar, Puts Him On Drake's Level [Video]

Veteran talk show personality Geraldo Rivera is speaking out. The Fox News correspondent has stepped up to discuss getting referenced on Kendrick Lamar's new DAMN. album.

During a Friday podcast, Rivera acknowledged Lamar sampling him on "YAH."

"Today, I'm responding to some news I got this morning that Kendrick Lamar, the great rapper, Grammy award winner, really, I mean, aside from Drake, in my opinion, probably the best hip-hop artist out there today. I didn't particularly care for the way he mentioned me. ... I have no beef with Kendrick Lamar, as I said, I think aside from Drake, the most talented artist, rapper, whatever you want to call it. But our beef or disagreement - stems from February 2016 during the Grammys when Kendrick Lamar performed 'Alright' at a time when the country really was on pins and needles, it was extreme tension, you had Ferguson going on - he did [his performance] on top of a police car, with an American flag, breaking out of chains and so forth and what I said at the time is that in my view, that kind of performance is irresponsible. Why do I say that? As I said at the time, 'hip-hop has done more damage to African Americans than racism in recent years. This is exactly the wrong message.' I think too much of rap in the last couple of decades has really portrayed the cops as the enemy." (Facebook)

This week, hip-hop mogul Diddy publicly praised Lamar's new DAMN. album.

"Kendrick's bearing his soul on this album. I don't want to hear nobody sh*t that ain't bearing their soul. If you ain't telling the truth or bearing your soul, don't make no motherf*cking rap records. Don't make no god d*mn R&B records. Don't even get on the motherf*cking mic unless you're ready to bear your soul and tell the truth, man. That boy got soul on him man. I'll be waiting for months. You know the dope sh*t I've heard? I'll sometimes be waiting years to hear dope sh*t. That's why I'm so god d*mn excited. This sh*t is dope. People are making dope albums. Drake's album's dope. Rozay's album's crazy. Now this? I just love dope sh*t."
