Kendrick Lamar and girlfriend Whitney Alford

While Kendrick Lamar continues to enjoy success in his career, it seems he’s succeeding in his personal life as well.

The rapper has reportedly gotten engaged to his high school sweetheart, Whitney Alford.

During an interview with The Breakfast Club on Friday (April 3), he confirmed the rumors, saying: “Yeah, definitely. I’m loyal to the soil.”

Kendrick and Alford live together in Southern California. “At the end of the day, you want to always have real people around you, period,” Kendrick said. “Everybody that’s been around me, they been around me since day one, and I can’t change that. I always show respect when respect has been given. People that been by your side, you’re supposed to honor that.”
