The pair have collaborated previously on ‘Opps’, from Lamar’s Black Panther soundtrack.

Earlier in the set, Staples is reported to have named the main stage the “white people stage”, adding: “I know y’all don’t know who I am cause none of y’all look like me, but I don’t give a…”

Later, Lamar appeared once again – teaming up with SZA to perform ‘CTRL‘ track ‘Doves in the Wind’, along with their Black Panther collaboration ‘All the Stars’.

Meanwhile, Fox News pundit Geraldo Rivera has recently said that Kendrick Lamar‘s social commentary “pales in comparison to the ghetto civil war that’s being waged” in America.

The rapper dissed Rivera on his ‘DAMN.‘ track ‘YAH.’ after he said “hip-hop has done more damage to young African-Americans than racism” in the wake of Lamar’s 2015 BET Awards performance. Rivera defended his past comments, adding that he is “an integrationist” and wants “people to live together, to aspire together”.
