ON-THE-GO: KENDRICK LAMAR PRINCIPAL FOR THE DAY
I love to see any celebrities giving back; especially rappers, since they get such a bad rap in the media. One can only hope that media outlets start reporting stories like these. It’s not ALL bad! Anyway, KL stepped away from his tour for a moment to speak to the students at Mount Pleasant High School on Rhode Island for good attendance. They have a ‘Get Schooled’ program which allowed for Kendrick to serve as principal for the day!
“Without education you don’t have anything,” said Kendrick, who was a 4.0 student at Centennial High School in L.A. and was the first in his family to graduate from high school. “My teachers were great positive influences in my life. My middle school English teacher was probably the reason I became a rapper. He used to encourage me to write poetry and would challenge me, which helped me improve my vocabulary and made me enjoy writing.”
