Kendrick Lamar Gives Incredible Gift To Loyal Fan In Need Of Help
A lot of people are quick to judge celebrities from seeing them in the street, claiming they're arseholes if they don't stop and speak, or pose for a picture.
However, behind the scenes we have no idea just how hospitable or humility they can be. Well, apart from when it's posted on social media.
Luckily someone caught and posted the moment Kendrick Lamar honoured one of his biggest fans with a special gift, making their year.
During the Dallas stop of the Damn Tour, the rapper met with Jennifer Phillips, who's been in a wheelchair since a car accident that made her a quadriplegic.
My accident was actually in 2006...July 26th but I don't mind that mistake lol. Here's me in ICU 2 weeks or so afterwards pic.twitter.com/XileAMVTTx

Despite her spinal injuries she has managed to live life, Complex reports, having been on ski trips, finished college and attended concerts, but the fact she doesn't have a great disability vehicle has been holding her back from doing more stuff.
She set up a GoFundMe page to replace her van, hoping for a modified vehicle which will make it easier to travel.
The page no longer exists because Kendrick repaid her faithfulness as a fan by buying her a new one.
I would like to thank everyone who donated to and shared my fund! I am officially ending it becau... https://t.co/zd0gwwrK2i

He also gave her a signed Damn jacket, on which he wrote a message saying: "Thank you for always supporting me. You're [sic] a inspiration for me.
"You are strong and positive. You're 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. You're always appreciated! - K. Lamar."
So @msj3nn has been around from day 1 supporting the homies in everything they've ever done. Today we changed her life the way she has changed ours and so many others. We no longer have to worry about that gofundme link in my bio because SHE'S GETTING A NEW MODIFIED VAN COURTESY OF KENDRICK AND TDE. WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH, JENN. Here's a video of me losing my cool before getting her real reaction lol. DAMN.

She was obviously over the moon, breaking the news on social media.
"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," she wrote.
"I've been to every show Kendrick has had in Dallas. 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.
"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. Thanks to the whole team!"
This is incredible all round.
