As a white person, you can love hip-hop, but that doesn’t give you the right to say the N-word–this Kendrick Lamar let his enthusiastic white fan know.
According to Billboard, the rapper headlined the final day of Hangout Festival on Sunday in Gulf Shores, Alabama, and midway through the show, he invited a few lucky fans to rap “M.A.A.D City” onstage with him. Things escalated quickly when a white female began to sing the hook of the title track; she apparently had dodged the first N-word, but she slipped up on the second time, and then continued to sing it a few more times. The crowd was displeased, and Lamar halted the song, and laid down the ground rules.
“You got to bleep one single word though,” he said. The fan apologised, although the crowd continued to boo her.
However, Kendrick Lamar gave her a second chance, she sang the hook incorrectly the second time around, before Lamar thanked her for joining him.

TSR Staff: Kyle Anfernee Instagram: @Kyle.Anfernee Kendrick Lamar hit the stage at #HangoutFest this Sunday night in Gulf Shores, Alabama and let’s just say his set got a lil interesting! Kendrick invited a fan on stage to rap his song “M.A.A.D. City” with him and everything was going great, until sis dropped the “N-word.” ___________________________________ As seen in the video, the young white woman, dropped the N-word which comes at the end of each line in the chorus. ___________________________________ Kendrick told her she could keep rapping, but would have to bleep that word out. She ended up apologizing, but it just got more awkward after that and he ended up cutting the song short.
