Kendrick Lamar Supports Obama

By// Chandler Rollins

Kendrick Lamar has announced his support of Obama in the 2012 Presidential Election. The good kid, m.A.A.d. city rapper told MTV News that he will be voting for President Barack, stating that he doesn’t believe Mitt Romney has “got a good heart all.” He also urged his generation to exercise their right to vote.

“So what made me the most angry is, when something doesn’t go right in that world, you get people out here that want to blame Obama. And I think that that’s corny,” he said. “I think that’s one of our biggest failures as a community, as a generation. Not wanting to go out and do for ourselves and to sit back and wait. And then when it not happen, we point the finger. I think we just really need to take matters into our own hands, uplift our community, put money back in our community and show these kids how there’s something different. Yep.”

This comes as a stark contrast to Lamar’s comments last summer on Truth Is Scary TV  where he declared that he did not vote, and that American should only focusing on making a difference on a smaller scale.
