Kendrick Lamar refuses to spend his fortune on himself because he would rather treat his family.

The hip-hop newcomer has bought a property for his immediate family and is paying for his brother's education as he wants to thank them for their support in launching his career.

He tells Britain's The Sun, "Now that I'm financially stable I'm able to help them. That's all I care about. I haven't bought myself anything yet. My biggest purchase for them was buying them a house and seeing my brother go to college.

"My family always pushed and supported my dream so I can help them with theirs. And they are so proud."
