Kendrick Lamar is firing back at his critics … telling us they’re using his BET Awards performance to stir up fake controversy — instead of focusing on the real message of his new hit song, “Alright.”
Kendrick squarely responded to pundits, like Geraldo Rivera … when he came on TMZ Live on Thursday. He opened the BETs by rapping on top of a vandalized police car — and Geraldo accused him, and all hip-hop, of hurting black youths more than helping.
Check it out … ’cause Kendrick didn’t pull any punches. His point — the cop car was just a side dish, the real meat of his performance was giving people hope.
For what it’s worth … the “Alright” music video is pretty badass.
