Kendrick Lamar

Kendrick has donated money to various shelters including those for the homeless and battered women, but he’s given his personal time too to help uplift the next generation. A few hours after his Summer Jam performance, K. Dot stopped by High Tech High School in North Bergen, New Jersey, on Monday and listened to kids drop their poems and freestyles.

The Compton MC visited the school after learning that one of the teachers used lyrics from To Pimp a Butterfly to breakdown comparisons to Toni Morrison’s “The Bluest Eye.” Kendrick definitely sparked a few more minds this week.
