More hip hop stars winning amazing honors.
Yesterday it was Kanye West receiving his honorary doctorate and today it’s Kendrick Lamar being honored with the “Generational Icon” Award from the California State Senate. Watch the video below.
It’s definitely an honor to be right here in front of you guys. Being from the city of Compton and knowing the parks that I played at and neighborhoods, I always thought how great the opportunity would be to give back to my community.
Up next for Kendrick: he’ll be in Taylor Swift’s upcoming video, ICYM the announcement yesterday.
