Shit. The rumors are true. Kendrick Lamar is engaged.

Congrats to Lamar and his long-time girlfriend Whitney Alford. Condolences to us, the people who will never be married to either of them. A minor, further congratulations to The Breakfast Club on Power 105.1 for getting the interview where the normally private Lamar briefly speaks about his engagement. Lamar says, "I'm loyal to the soil."

Best wishes to Alford and Lamar and a small prayer to the rest of the single people out there.
