Kendrick Lamar is known to keep quiet about his personal life but he did open up a little during his visit to The Breakfast Club. Last week, the rumor mill went to work when a picture showed his longtime girlfriend Whitney Alford with a diamond ring on her left hand’s ring finger. The “King Kunta” rapper confirmed that he was indeed engaged.
“At the end of the day you want to always have loyal people around you whether it’s male or female,” said the 27-year-old. “Everybody that has been around me they been around me since day one and I can’t change that. I always show respect where respect has been given. People have been by your side, you’re supposed to honor that.”
Alford is Kendrick’s high school sweetheart and the couple has reportedly been going strong for 10 years.
K. Dot also spoke about the interview he did with Tupac at the end of the “Mortal Man” track on To Pimp A Butterfly. He said he got the audio from someone in Germany and knew that it would fit the album perfectly.
“Tupac was a prophet and everything he was talking about is going on today and that right there just sparked the idea immediately for what I was talking about in my record.”
