In an interview with Billboard that was published today, the TDE rapper said:
“I wish somebody would look in our neighborhood knowing that it’s already a situation, mentally, where it’s f***ed 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.”
Banks took to Twitter to blast Kendrick, saying his comments were the “dumbest sh*t [she’d] ever heard a black man say.” She then proceeded to deliver a history lesson in a similar fashion to Q-Tip. Ring a bell? Check out the tweets below.
