Kendrick Lamar covers the January 17th issue of Billboard magazine, and in his interview, the rapper shared his thoughts on recent police killings, namely the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, Missouri:

“I wish somebody would look in our neighborhood knowing that it’s already a situation, mentally, where it’s fucked 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.”

After reading K Dot’s comments, the always vocal Azealia Banks took to her favorite platform — Twitter — and gave the Compton native a read, criticizing him for not only his observations regarding Ferguson, but for giving them to a “white publication.”

In his interview, Kendrick Lamar also stuck up for Banks’ arch nemesis Iggy Azalea, who has been criticized relentlessly criticized over her alleged cultural appropriation, so maybe that’s what has Azealia Banks all but hurt.

“She’s doing her thing,” Lamar said about Iggy Azalea. “Let her. People have to go through trials and tribulations to get where they at. Do your thing, continue to rock it, because obviously God wants you here.”
