Lamar initially responded to Rivera’s critique in an interview, asking, “How can you take a song that’s about hope and turn it into hatred?” He added that “the overall message is ‘we’re gonna be alright.’ It’s not the message of ‘I wanna kill people.’”

By sampling Rivera in his own words, however, Lamar lays the foundation for his new album’s main themes: black excellence in the face of institutional racism and police brutality. “BLOOD.” features a spoken-word parable in which Lamar is gunned down by a blind elderly woman. “DNA.”, meanwhile, is a celebration of his black heritage which hears Lamar rap, “I got loyalty, got royalty inside my DNA.”

In addition to the two samples, Lamar takes a lyrical shot at Rivera on the album track “YAH.” He raps, “Fox News wanna use my name for percentage/ Somebody tell Geraldo this nigga got ambition.”

LYRICS

[Intro: Kid Capri]
New shit, new Kung Fu Kenny

[Verse 1]
I got so many theories and suspicions
I’m diagnosed with real nigga conditions
Today is the day I follow my intuition
Keep the family close—get money, fuck bitches
I double parked the Aston in the red
My mama told me that I’ma work myself to death
My girl told me don’t let these hoes get in my head
My world been ecstatic, I checked the signal that read

[Chorus]
Buzzin’, radars is buzzin’
Yah, yah, yah, yah
Yah, yah, yah, yah, yah, yah
Buzzin’, radars is buzzin’
Yah, yah, yah, yah
Yah, yah, yah, yah, yah, yah

[Verse 2]
Interviews wanna know my thoughts and opinions
Fox News wanna use my name for percentage
My latest muse is my niece, she’s worth livin’
See me on the TV and scream, “That’s Uncle Kendrick”
Yeah, that’s the business
Somebody tell Geraldo this nigga got some ambition
I’m not a politician, I’m not ’bout a religion
I’m a Israelite, don’t call me Black no mo’
That word is only a color, it ain’t facts no mo’
My cousin called, my cousin Carl Duckworth
Said, “Know my worth”
And Deuteronomy say that we all been cursed
I know he walks the Earth
But it’s money to get, bitches to hit, yah
Zeroes to flip, temptation is yah
First on my list, I can’t resist, yah
Everyone together now, know that we forever—

[Chorus]
Buzzin’, radars is buzzin’
Yah, yah, yah, yah
Yah, yah, yah, yah, yah, yah
Buzzin’, radars is buzzin’
Yah, yah, yah, yah
Yah, yah, yah, yah
