Lamar did something incredible after one of his shows for a fan who’s confined to a wheelchair.
Jennifer Phillips is a huge Kendrick and Top Dog fan, having been to eight of his shows.
She is also a quadriplegic, and following a car accident in 2007 has relied on a wheelchair to get around.
Phillips had been trying to raise money to buy a specially adapted van to make it easier to get around. On Friday Kendrick made that happen.
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.
Phillip’s friend caught the moment when K Dot told Phillips he was going to sort her transport for her and gave her a signed shirt saying how she was an inspiration to him.

She later went on Instagram to give thanks to Kendrick:
“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”
An amazing thing to do.
