Like Kanye West in Chicago, K. Dot was also the recipient of a special honor as well yesterday (May 11th). The California State Senate honored Kendrick with their Generation Icon Award for his continued efforts to support his Compton community via various donations to the Compton Unified School District for its sports, music, and after-school programs, donations to Habitat For Humanity, and more.

Presented by him to State Senator – and fellow Compton native – Isadore Hall III, Kendrick gave a brief acceptance speech as well.
“It’s definitely an honor to be right here in front of you guys,” said Kendrick. “Being from the city of Compton and knowing the parks that I played at and neighborhoods, I always thought how great the opportunity would be to give back to my community.”
Watch as he received the award below.
Congrats to Kendrick and his entire family.
