Kendrick Lamar Explains Why He'll Always Champion Compton

By HHL Editors

Kendrick Lamar has always been proud to rep Compton. In a video interview with Essence, he explained why promoting his hometown is important to him.

"There's a lot of kids that grew up the way I did," K.Dot told Essence. "That feel like its no way out. We don't get a lot of celebrities and whatnot to come to the city and actually put they hand back in the city and say, 'You know what, you can do it, too.' I feel like it's only right that I champion them, let them know I'll always be behind them. Let them know I know the sacrifices and the struggles they go through and give 'em some type of inspiration."
The 28-year old also revealed that the one word message of his latest albumĀ To Pimp A Butterfly was "leadership."

Check out the interview, which also touches on his creative process and what he'd do if he wasn't a rapper
