Hours before Kendrick Lamar blew everyone away with his incredible performance at the Grammys, Kendrick took the time to inspire on a much smaller but more meaningful level. The now eight-time Grammy Award winner took Compton High School students on a once-in-a-lifetime field trip to theĀ 58th Annual Grammy Awards last night.

A few lucky student were selected to spend the day with Kendrick. In the short clip, the kids can be seen getting a chance to really get to know Kendrick, ask him questions, and receiving some inspiring words. The lucky students were even gifted with Kendrick’s latest ReebokĀ sneaker before heading out onto the red carpet.
