kendrick-lamar-crown1Kendrick Lamar is hot as hell – the latest praise comes from the California State Senate:  On Monday, the 27-year-old Grammy Award-winner received the “Generational Icon” award from California’s State Senate. The Compton native was honored for his ongoing efforts to address issues affecting his community and recognized for the music he’s produced that reflects these concerns.  “Being from the city of Compton and knowing the parks that I played at in the neighborhoods, I’ve always thought of how great the opportunity would be to give back to my community off of what I do in music,” he said. “So in order to do that from a city all the way to a state standpoint and have these young kids look at me at some type of inspiration it’s really an honor.”
