Kendrick Lamar Just Changed One Fan's Life
Kendrick Lamar is making our hearts MELT this week with this kind gesture that will completely change the life of one special fan.
Superfan Jennifer Phillips was the victim of a car accident in 2007 and has been wheelchair-bound since the accident.
She’s been to no less than EIGHT of Lamar’s concerts over the past couple of years and last year she set up a GoFundMe page to raise funds for a modified van to make it easier for it to get around.
But when Lamar found out about the project, he decided to go ahead and buy her a new van, as well as giving her a signed DAMN jacket, with a personal message.
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.
“Thank you for always supporting me. You’re an inspiration for me. You are strong and positive. Your kind and beautiful,” the rapper wrote.
Posting on Instagram, Jennifer said, “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.
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
