Kendrick Lamar Will Receive Key to the City of Compton

Mayor announces K. Dot's latest accolade.

Before Kendrick Lamar takes on the Grammys next month, the 28-year-old MC will be celebrated by his hometown. Compton mayor Aja Brown revealed on Twitter today that Lamar is set to receive the key to the city in a ceremony February 13. 

BORN AND RAISED IN COMPTON

Growing up in an area notorious for crime and gangs could’ve sent Lamar’s life in a different direction. As the city moves toward positive change, Lamar is perhaps its best way of reaching the youth. 

Congrats to King Kendrick!
