Kendrick Lamar showed love to the students at Mount Pleasant High School in Providence, Rhode Island by becoming the principal for the day through the Get Schooled Celebrity Principals for the Day program. Not only just taking pictures with the students, Kendrick stresses the importance of education to be something better.
“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.”
