He is Hip-Hop’s newest old-school star, as the New York Times Magazine calls him. And he has good news for his fans: Kendrick Lamar is engaged to his long time girlfriend Whitney Alford! The news may not be shocking to the ones close to him, who know that Lamar has been dating Alford “since Day 1” as the young rapper puts it. However the 27-year-old Grammy winner is also very private about his personal life. So when he announced in an interview with The Breakfast Club on Power 105.1 that he proposed to his high school sweetheart, everybody got excited.
Kendrick and Whitney’s relationship is closer than most love connections in the celebrity world. And the star rapper always talk about his girlfriend with utmost reverence. In January in an interview with Billboard Magazine, he said: “I wouldn’t even call her my girl. 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.” Could it be put any better? We wish the best of luck and a lifetime of happiness to the lovely couple.
