Kendrick Lamar had that experience in December when President Obama named “How Much a Dollar Cost” as his favorite song of 2015. Afterwards, Lamar visited the White House and used the opportunity to do some good. His record label Top Dawg Entertainment released a brief video of the meeting in which Kendrick describes the pow-wow:

“I sat down with President Barack Obama,” he said. “We shared the same views: topics concerning the inner cities, the problems, the solutions and furthermore embracing the youth. We are both aware that mentoring saves lives.”

Specifically, Lamar gave a shout-out to My Brother’s Keeper, a mentoring initiative signed by the President.
