Kendrick Lamar made dreams come true for one of his biggest fans during the Dallas stop of his DAMN. Tour.
Jennifer Phillips, a disabled person, is one of the rapper’s biggest supporters. To thank her for her loyalty, Kendrick gave her a new modified van to assist with her disability and mobility.
Phillips took to Instagram to share the news of the very special gift from one of her idols. In addition to the van, Kendrick even gave her an autographed jacket, signing it with a very special note for her.
“Thank you for always supporting me. You’re an 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. You’re always appreciated! — K. Lamar”, the autograph reads.
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.
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
In an Instagram post Phillips explained what the special moment meant for her. She said that she was never a fan of his music to ever receive anything and this was simply the cherry on top.
“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!” she said.
Thanks to Kendrick, Phillips will no longer need her GoFundMe page, which she launched to help buy herself the new van. This July marks 10 years since the car accident that injured her spinal cord and left her a quadriplegic.
