Kendrick Lamar's performance at last weekend's BET Awards was recently criticised by Fox News' Geraldo Rivera, who described the rapper's lyrics as "not helpful at all" and claimed that "hip-hop has done more damage to young African Americans than racism in recent years."

Needless to say, Lamar wasn't pleased. He has since responded to the absurd claims, saying that "the message, the overall message, is we gonna be all right. It's not the message, we gonna kill people."

"This is us expressing ourselves," Lamar added. "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, go in the booth and talking about the situation and hoping these kids can find some type of influence on it in a positive manner. Coming from these streets and coming from these neighborhoods, we're taking our talents and putting 'em inside the studio."
