Kendrick Lamar Plays Principal For The Day In Rhode Island

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Aside from ruling radio and the music festival market, Kendrick Lamar can now add a new experience to his list. Following in the footsteps of Nicki Minaj and Ne-Yo, K. Dot took part in the Get Schooled Celebrity Principals For The Day program. He spent a day at Mount Pleasant High School in Providence, Rhode Island. While there, he spoke to the students about the importance of graduating 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.”
