A nine-year-old fan who attended Kendrick Lamar‘s first concert in Detroit for The Big Steppers Tour has received a message from him.
During Kendrick’s performance of “Count Me Out” at Little Caesars Arena on Sunday (August 14), the kid caught his attention. As the entire arena watched, Kendrick took time to share some words of inspiration.
He said, “You will forever be great”. “You’re great right now – you can do whatever you put your mind to, you know? You understand that? I remember when I was your age as well, dreaming. Lil Kendrick, do what you wanna do in life.”
The young fan received a handwritten message from Kendrick Lamar after the concert thanking him for attending and for the good energy he brought to the show.
Kendrick wrote, “Young Kendrick, thank you for coming”. “I’m glad we got to exchange energy. You are special. Continue to manifest the great energy you possess!!! See you next time!!! Luv!!!”

Kendrick said, “It’s really just about the feeling of it at the end of the day”. “Past all the politics, past all the numbers. It’s what music makes you feel, how it makes you feel. So to see that … And shout-out to him by the way because I seen him, bro. I was like, man, I wonder what he going through? But at the end of the day that’s how you want everybody to perceive your music.”
