Kendrick Lamar's Portrait Will Hang In US Capitol
Kendrick Lamar's portrait will soon hang in the US Capitol, giving Congress at least one redeemable quality.
This is thanks to the Congressional Art Competition, an annual contest for high school students.
Tiona Cordova, a senior at Centennial High School in Pueblo, Colorado, won the the contest in her congressional district with her portrait of Lamar, which is well deserved.
Lamar has been to the White House before, after being invited by former President Barack Obama.
But, for the next year, Lamar will occupy the US Capitol building (in portrait form).
Cordova's representative, Rep. Scott Tipton, gave her a shoutout on Twitter.
Over the past few years, Lamar has become the indisputable king of hip-hop. Many would likely agree he's the best rapper alive.
Lamar's music, which deals with an array of issues, is wildly popular and he's become a major influencer for young people.
His songs, which often touch on social justice topics, including police brutality, have even been used to teach high school students.
"Humble" remains the most popular song and has been streamed over 217 million times.
The rapper will visit Washington, DC in July as part of his tour for the album, and he could potentially take some time to go visit his portrait.
Maybe he could rap some sense into Congress while he's at it.
