DAVID GREENE, HOST:
Good morning. I'm David Greene. The rapper Kendrick Lamar wonders...
(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "THESE WALLS")
KENDRICK LAMAR AND ANNA WISE: (Singing) If these walls could talk...
GREENE: ...If these walls could talk. Well, Kendrick, you might get your wish because you are going to be on a wall at the U.S. Capitol soon. A student from Colorado won an art competition with her portrait of Kendrick. The portrait will be displayed for lawmakers to see. And, Kendrick, I know one message you might send them.
(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "HUMBLE")
KENDRICK LAMAR: (Rapping) Hold up. Hold up. Sit down. Be humble. Hold up. Sit down. Be humble.
GREENE: It's MORNING EDITION.
