Kendrick loves the kids.

The Grammy-award winning rapper made it clear that he is here for the youth by inviting a group of Compton high school students to the biggest night in music.

He brought students from his alma-mater, Centennial high school, to spend the day with him and then go to the awards ceremony later that day. The goal was to help the kids see beyond their current circumstances and to dream bigger.

Lamar, who is always community minded, topped off the honor by giving each kid a pair of Reebok Classics.

“In the next 10 years from now, hopefully they’ll be further than where I’m at. It’s a beautiful thing,” the prolific lyricist concluded.

Kendrick, you make us so proud.
