Can you imagine what it would be like to sit in the White House with President Barack Obama? Kendrick Lamar sure knows the feeling, based off this recent 60-second short, which the rapper's label and management company, Top Dawg Entertainment, released on Monday (January 11).
In the video, K. Dot talked about the importance of having a mentor as a child and continuing the traditional so that "it helps the next kid be a better person in life." "I will forever be aware of my influence and pay it forward. I look where I'm at today and realize that most of my success is owed to the mentors that were in my life," he said.
Kendrick went on to detail his visit with a man that felt the exact same way. "I sat down with President Barack Obama and shared the same views. Topics concurring the inner cities, the problem, the solutions, and furthermore embracing the youth. Both being aware that mentoring saves lives," he explained. "Sometimes I reflect and think back. where would I be if I didn't have the presence of an older acquaintance telling me what's right and what's wrong? Telling me the pros and cons of every move I was about to make. Telling me the best way to plan success for my future."
