Kendrick Lamar hosts well-attended album signing at a Compton Best Buy.
An estimated 2,500 fans turned out for Kendrick Lamar's Saturday album signing at a Best Buy in Compton, his first public appearance in his hometown since the release of To Pimp A Butterfly earlier this week.
“It feels good to be back in my city, to go out here and see these kids still motivated by my music and by my dreams and aspirations,” he told ABC7.
Kendrick had only words of thanks and praise for his fans.
"I wanna say thank you. Thank you for believing in me since day one. I've been doing my thing on the underground scene for years, you know, proud to be putting out any albums. These the same people that have been rocking with me so I want to say thank you for believing in me and I believe in you the same, so as long as we believe in each other, I will continue to do this music."
