Westcoast Hip-Hop hero K Dot, aka Kendrick Lamar was honored today on the California State Senate floor by 35th district state senator Isadore Hall.

After accepting his commendation, Kendrick was quoted as saying “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”.
