Geraldo Rivera has a beef with rap, but that doesn’t mean he thinks one of hip-hop’s biggest names isn’t great. After Kendrick Lamar name-checked Rivera on his new album, Damn, the Fox News host responded via a lengthy Facebook Live video by praising him and his rap rival. Sort of.

On the Damn song “Yah,” Lamar calls out the Fox News host for using his “name for percentage,” then names Geraldo directly when making it clear that this “n****s got some ambition.”

Geraldo Rivera previously talked about Kendrick after his controversial performance at the 2015 BET Awards and those comments are sampled at the end of the Damn track, “Blood.”

In the 18-minute Facebook video, Geraldo Rivera started out by complimenting Lamar, but he did it in a backhanded way.

“Aside from Drake, in my opinion, [Kendrick is] probably the best hip-hop artist out there today,” Geraldo proclaimed.

But Geraldo didn’t have any kudos for Kendrick’s (or Drake’s) genre.

“[Hip-hop is] the worst role model,” Rivera said.

“It’s the worst example. It’s the most negative possible message.”

Geraldo went on to question the “point” of rap. Besides selling records, of course.

“I get that this stuff is popular, but it avoids the central reality, just as Black Lives Matter avoids the central reality,” Geraldo said.

“I know that the real danger to real black men and real brown men now is that their role model will sing about cops being killers and the system being stacked and there’s no chance of advancement and all the rest of it. This is why I say that hip-hop has done more damage to young African-Americans than racism in recent years. This is exactly the wrong message.”
