Kendrick Lamar very recently bought his sister, Kayla Duckworth, a 2017 Toyota Camry as a high school graduation present and she clearly appreciated the gift.
“Thank you big brother for my graduation gift! @kendricklamar,” Duckworth wrote on social media along with the Toyota that Lamar bought her, which started off a weird wave of criticism of Lamar.
The car comes with a modest price tag — just over $23,000 in its simplest model. The rapper has a net worth of over $30 million, according to his recent song The Heart Part 4.
But there are always haters on the internet. Some people wrote on Twitter that Lamar, whose album “Damn” became the biggest release of 2017 when it sold more than 600,000 in its first week, should have got his sister a better car.

Others came to the Grammy winner’s defence, pointing out what a sweet thing he did by buying his baby sister a safe, reliable car. This is, after all, a man whose recent hit song is titled “Humble.”
“Beautiful car for a beautiful lady, don’t listen to anybody, you are blessed with an awesome brother, congratulations on your graduation,” one Instagram user opined.

Another analyzed even further why a Camry was an excellent choice.”Very sensible and I’m sure she has no car note plus she won’t have to worry about putting premium gas I think it was a smart move for her as well as himself,” the Instagram user wrote. “All those thinking he should have spent big bucks. That is why there are so many broke celebs. It is best to be sensible and invest your money let it mature. Kudos Kendrick.”
Lamar, 29, is one of the top artists of the year so far, thanks to his critically acclaimed album “Damn.” His hit song “Humble” became the first No. 1 single of his career.
