Man o man, y’all don’t know how much it excites me to be able to write about this. FINALLY, someone GET’S IT!  The simple stress-free life is where it is at. Ensuring you have a place to stay for all of your days is what I’m all about. In a time where EVERYONE on Instagram is rich and acting like they are living like the Kardashians, Kendrick Lamar is sending a loud message to our youth that it ain’t about all of that.

CLEARLY this brother can afford to live just about anywhere he would like to. However, Kendrick Lamar opted to live in a modest 4 bedroom house in Eastvale, CA. for $523,500. Quiet as its kept, he is still living better than most, but its the principle of the matter. Less is more. More does not always equate to better. I try to preach to people all the time that their is a certain level of peace that comes along with knowing you don’t have to work to meet some outrageous monthly overhead. Kudos to Kendrick Lamar. I just hope other young celebrities begin to take note.
