Kendrick Lamar never forgets where he came from and is always giving props to Compton, Calif. Whether it’s through his community-service endeavors or always recognizing Compton in his songs, Lamar will remind you he’s Compton-proud every chance he gets. And now the city is showing how proud it is of him.

Compton Mayor Aja Brown announced on Twitter that Lamar will be given the key to the city. Brown expressed how the rapper inspires everyone in Compton and shared positive sentiments about him.

Lamar will receive the key to the city just two days before the Grammys, and need I remind you that he copped 11 nominations? Seriously, if he doesn’t walk away with a couple, there will be a lot of angry fans and Comptonites.
