Activists Chant Kendrick Lamar's Alright

Activists at Cleveland State University repurposed a Kendrick Lamar track during a protest against police harassment, which saw an officer use pepper spray on a crowd. Footage shows the group chanting the chorus to Lamar’s track Alright, which appeared on his most recent album To Pimp a Butterfly, as they stand off with police at the protest. Lamar has become one of the most outspoken rap artists about violence affecting African American communities. Some critics have compared To Pimp a Butterfly to the work of Ralph Ellison and Alex Haley, novelists who summed up the lives of black Americans.
