Kendrick Lamar may have severed ties with the White House once the Obama’s exited but thanks to a high school student, the Compton rapper is heading back to the U.S Capitol.
On Tuesday, Colorado Congressman Scott Tipton took to Twitter to congratulate a Centennial High School student named Tiona Cordova, who took home first place in the annual Congressional Art Competition. The annual competition highlights “artistic talent in the nation and in each congressional district” and entries are chosen by each district’s representatives.
The winning portrait of Lamar, titled “Utmost Appreciation,” will be later displayed in the U.S Capitol building for one year.
