“Hip-hop has done more damage to black and brown people than racism in the last 10 years, ” he said.

“When you find the youngster, a Puerto Rican from the South Bronx or a black kid from Harlem, who has succeeded in life other than being the one-tenth of one-tenth of one per cent that make it in the music business, that's been a success in life walking around with his pants around his ass and with visible tattoos…it’s this whole ethos.”

Rivera added that he loved Russell Simmons, the US magnate who founded hip-hop label Def Jam, calling him a “dear friend”.

“I admire his business acumen, ” he added. “At some point, those guys have to cop to the fact that by encouraging this distinctive culture that is removed from the mainstream, they have encouraged people to be so different from the mainstream that they can't participate other than, you know, the racks in the garment centre and those entry-level jobs, and I lament it.

“I really do. I think that it has been very destructive culturally.”

Russell Simmons said Geraldo was trying to 'get himself relevant' after losing the Celebrity Apprentice When interviewed by TMZ, Simmons gave the journalist a severe dressing down, claiming he had mentioned hip-hop in an effort to “get himself relevant”.

Putting violent themes in urban music down to the American penal system, he added: ”(Rivera) never did s*** to help nobody, not in a very long time.
