Kendrick Lamar got recognized for all that he  has done in his community.

Yesterday Kendrick Lamara awarded the Generational Icon Award by the California State Senate. Senator Isadore Hall awarded Lamar on the floor of the Senate and made this statement: “In less than ten years as a professional artist, Mr. Lamar has gone from a local Compton young boy to become a multi-platinum, Billboard chart-topping, two-time Grammy award-winning musician.”

Despite his accomplishments musically He feels his real accomplishments come from being an active member of his community, giving large amounts of money to the Compton Unified School District to help fund music programs. He’s also donated to non-profit organizations like Habitat for Humanity.

Kendrick shared “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.”

Congrats to Kendrick Lamar on his accomplishments but most important his desire to give!
