In a recent interview with Billboard, rapper Kendrick Lamar gave a number of comments on policy brutality and race. Specifically, Kendrick explained “I wish somebody would look in our neighborhood knowing that it’s already a situation, mentally, where it’s f—ked up. What happened to (Michael Brown) should’ve never happened. Never. But when we don’t have respect for ourselves, how do we expect them to respect us? It starts from within. Don’t start with just a rally, don’t start from looting, it starts from within.” While many may agree with King Kendrick, rapper Azealia Banks did not, engaging in a number of tweets which sound off against Kendrick’s comments and calls his remarks “the dumbest sh*t I’ve ever heard a black man say.” Check out Kendrick’s full interview here, where he also pays respect to Iggy Azalea (who had a recent feud with Banks), and check out Azealia Banks’ full comments on her Twitter below.
