Kendrick Lamar Was Awarded The Key of Compton


After years of his steadily rise to the top of musical stardom, Kendrick Lamar has earned an award that is literally close-to-home, the key of Compton. The TDE rapper was awarded the city key earlier today, and several attendants came to the event to show love. According to Pitchfork, Lamar’s award ceremony featured an “Alright” inspired speech by the city’s mayor Aja Brown. School students were also present to sing Kendrick Lamar’s two critical tracks “i” and “Alright.”

Although the award ceremony was positive, there were some possible shots thrown at different entities. One of the speakers dissed “Young Thug” and Rich Homie Quan, and officials even said that the key of Compton was way better than Drake’s key of Toronto, according to the report. Among many of the people there or Kendrick’s award, fellow Compton rapper YG also attended the ceremony.
