Kendrick Lamar's 'Alright' Inspires Donald Trump Protesters

  /  03.12.2016

Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright” continues its streak as a protest anthem. This happened once again on Friday (Mar. 11), when a Donald Trump rally in Chicago was postponed due to safety concerns after his supporters and protesters showed up on the University of Illinois campus.

Once his appearance was canceled, hundreds of protesters celebrated inside the school’s pavilion, with many chanting a portion of K-Dot’s 2015 hit: “We gon’ be alright.”

Another rap song also inspired protesters, as many also chanted “Fuck Donald Trump” using the melody behind Crime Mob’s 2004 hit “Knuck If You Buck.”

Thousands of people were outside of the UIC Pavilion as this took place, according to the Chicago Tribune. It was reportedly the largest organized protest that Trump’s campaign has faced.

Violence also erupted at the rally. Five arrests were made, two officers and two civilians were injured.

Last July, Lamar’s “Alright” also inspired Black Lives Matter supporters, who chanted the lyrics while protesting a 14-year-old’s arrest.
