Kendrick Lamar Engaged! Rapper Confirms Engagement To Whitney Alford (VIDEO)
Kendrick Lamar is engaged! The 27-year-old rapper confirmed the news on Friday during an interview with Power 105’s “The Breakfast Club.” Rumors first started circulating that Lamar had popped the question to his high school sweetheart, Whitney Alford, last month. Watch the video below.
When Lamar was asked if the engagement rumors were true, he responded, “Yeah, definitely. I’m loyal to the soil.” He added, “At the end of the day, you want to always have real people around you, period – whether male or female. Everybody that’s been around me has been around since day one and I can’t change that.”
Lamar and Alford very rarely talk publicly about their decade-long relationship, and usually don’t pose for photographs together. However, back in January, the “Poetic Justice” rapper opened up a little bit about his lady love to Billboard. “I wouldn’t even call her my girl. That’s my best friend,” he said. “I don’t even like the term that society has put in the world as far as being a companion. She’s somebody I can tell my fears to.”
Lamar’s engagement news comes just two days after he released the music video for his single “King Kunta,” which is featured on his new album To Pimp A Butterfly. Check out the video below of Lamar confirming his engagement, and tell us what you think.
