Kendrick Lamar changes a fan’s life forever.

Not too long ago, Kendrick Lamar bought his little sister with a brand new car as a graduation gift. It appears that the “Humble” rapper is still feeling quite generous, and has decided to help a diehard fan this time around.

On Friday, during the Dallas date of his DAMN tour, Lamar and his record label, Top Dawg Entertainment, surprised longtime fan Jennifer Phillips with a wheelchair accessible van.

After inviting Phillips backstage, Lamar gifted her with a signed  jersey that 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.”

In 2007, Phillips suffered a spinal car injury following a car accident. She recently launched a GoFundMe page to raise money for a new van. As of Monday, the page was inactive.

On Saturday, Phillips shared the exciting news via Instagram, “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.”

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
