Congratulations! Kendrick Lamar has proposed to long-term love Whitney Alford. The rapper announced his engagement during a radio interview in which he gushed about his bride-to-be. We are so happy for them!

Well, it’s “Now or Never,” if you excuse the pun! Kendrick Lamar, 27, revealed he’s engaged to his high-school sweetheart Whitney Alford. The hip-hop star was a guest on Power 105.1 radio show The Breakfast Club April 3 where he confirmed he’s ready to tie the knot with his long-term girlfriend – following weeks of rumors that he had popped the question.

Kendrick Lamar Engaged To Whitney Alford: High School Sweetheart To Marry Him After Proposal

“I’m loyal to the soil. At the end of the day you want to always have real people around you period,” Kendrick told Power 105.1 radio show The Breakfast Club. “Everybody that’s been around me has been down since day one and I can’t change that. I don’t change for nobody. I always show respect when respect is being given and people that’s been by your side, you supposed to honor that. That’s how you stand up.”

News of Kendrick’s engagement follows the release of his latest music video ‘King Kunta‘ which dropped on April 1. That single is taken from his brand new album “To Pimp A Butterfly.”

Kendrick and Whitney are said to have started dating around 10 years ago – so we couldn’t be happier for the couple.

Kendrick Lamar: Only Allows Girlfriend To Call Him Out

In an interview with the NY Times last year, Kendrick revealed that the only person in his life that’s allowed to call him out is his girlfriend.

“She’s been here since day 1,” he said. And he later told Billboard in an interview in January: “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.”

What d’you think HollywoodLifers? It sounds like true love to us.
