Generosity must be in his DNA.
How else would you explain Kendrick Lamar’s obsession with giving away cars?
Most recently the five time Grammy-winning rapper surprised super fan Jennifer Phillips with a wheelchair-accessible van during a tour stop in Texas on Friday.
The Dallas native—who has gone to every Kendrick Lamar show in the Big D—started a GoFundMe page to raise money for the van.
Kendrick Lamar and his Top Dawg Entertainment record label must have caught wind of the quadriplegic’s wish because she was was whisked backstage to meet the Humble rapper, and given a handwritten thank you tee.
So about last night… lol. If you know me or even just look in my Instagram profile for two minutes then you know I am a huge Kendrick Lamar and TDE fan/supporter for YEARS. I've been to every show Kendrick has had in Dallas including the first one that even he forgot about lol and one in Austin. That's 8 shows and not including the other TDE artists shows. I was a big fan of music and concerts before my injury but I never supported and loved a label like theirs before. Of course they have great music but they are also great people. None of them have ever treated me like a stranger or a charity case lol. I didn't meet them because I'm in a wheelchair. I just know great people (shout out to @bluethegreat for the initial in person introduction to Dot & Q). I never supported them for any benefits like this lol. Their music and shows were enough for me. But this is amazing and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I love you all and always will. Thank God for you Kendrick and I will continue to pray for you. And like I said, next time I'm driving myself to your show lol. Thanks to the whole team! #tde
Last but not least Kendrick gave her the money for the van.
Now that’s an unforgettable night. Jen will be a K.L. stan for life behind this.
She’s even plotting the next Kendrick concert.
“Next time I’m driving myself to your show,” Phillips wrote on Instagram.
Fair warning, it likely won’t be a V-class Mercedes Benz type whip.
So please, please, please don’t give this really good dude flak for that like when he bought his lil sis a Toyota Camry for her high school graduation.
I’d rather a Camry (nice ride, BTW) than a bus pass. That’s all I’m sayin’.
And I’m sure Jen, who injured her spinal cord in a car accident in 2007, is appreciative of the comfortable ride.
