BLOOD. by Kendrick Lamar Favorite 



Apr 14 2017



Kendick Lamar is known as one of the most prolific, and socially conscious, rappers of our time. 'BLOOD.' is the second track off of Lamar's iconic album 'DAMN.' from 2017. What makes this song stand out is the sample used at the end of part one of the song. Lamar sampled a clip from Fox News, which reads: "Lamar stated his views on police brutality, with a line in the song quote 'And we hate popo, wanna kill us dead in the street for sure'". The full news segment includes more awful statements, like one reporter claiming how "Hip-hop has done more damage to young African Americans than racism in recent years". This sample choice was clearly intended to raise awareness about the things channels like Fox News get away with saying.
