California’s own Senator Isadore Hall of the 35th District has awarded Kendrick Lamar as Generational Icon on the legislative floor. Kendrick has also gave hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Compton Unified School District and to other non-profit organizations in the community. While awarding Kendrick, Hall had spoken on the Compton rapper on his achievements. “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”. After accepting his award, Kendrick spoke on how he felt after being awarded. “It’s definitely an honor to be right here in front of you guys,” said Kendrick. “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.” Congratulations to Kendrick.
