Kendrick Lamar surprises a fan with a life-changing present.
As if there weren’t already enough reasons to be a fan of Kendrick Lamar, the TDE frontman was out here making dreams come true for a lucky fan this past weekend. During the Dallas stop of his on-going “DAMN. Tour,” K Dot met one of his biggest fans, a woman named Jennifer Phillips, who happened to be quadriplegic and he gave her a brand new modified van to help with her disability in the process.
In addition to the van however, Kendrick also gave Jennifer a signed jacket & a customized Dallas Mavericks jersey with his government name, Duckworth, on it. The signed autograph jacket read: “Thank you for always supporting me. Your a inspiration for me. You are strong and positive. Your kind and beautiful. For all the years of inspiring me, the least I can do is make sure your comfortable driving the city. A gift from me to you. Your always appreciated! — K. Lamar.”
Phillips, who has used a wheelchair ever since a 2007 car accident, revealed the touching story on her social media accounts, which included a clip of K. Dot presenting her the gifts. Her caption read on IG:
“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,” she wrote. “[…]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 […]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!”
