*With Kendrick Lamar’s “To Pimp a Butterfly” sitting atop the Billboard 200 for a second week, the Compton rapper recently revealed that he’s engaged to Whitney Alford, the girl he’s been dating since high school, reports Billboard.
When K.Dot stopped by NYC’s Breakfast Club radio show this morning (April 3), the hosts asked if the rumors about his engagement were true.
“Yeah definitely,” he said. “I’m loyal to the soil. At the end of the day you want to always have real people around you, period — whether male or female.”
In January, Lamar told Billboard that “girlfriend” wasn’t a strong enough word for what Alford meant to him.
“I wouldn’t even call her my girl,” he said. “That’s my best friend. 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.”
