The story was recounted on Twitter.

Kendrick Lamar is all over the news right now thanks to his beef with Drake. Overall, he is about to have the biggest song in the world with "Not Like Us." Furthermore, he is going to chart with "Euphoria" and there is a chance songs like "Meet The Grahams" may get some love as well. At the end of the day, Lamar put out an EP of diss songs, and fans can't help but appreciate that. After all, he is someone who typically doesn't release music all that often. So for him to show out in this way was incredibly impressive.

During his battle with Drake, the Canadian megastar claimed that Kendrick doesn't donate any of his money to the people of Compton. However, that narrative is slowly being debunked on social media. In the tweet below, you can see a video of someone noting how Kendrick has frequently put money on people's books, while also paying for funerals. Another Twitter user by the name of The Woodland Hermit came out and told a story about Kendrick buying sneakers for an entire Compton youth basketball team.
