For anyone familiar with the Texas hip-hop scene, Robert Mota (better know by his moniker Crippled Swagg), is a mainstay at nearly every concert that comes through his Dallas hometown. On August 31, Mota was attending the Dallas leg of Young Thug's tour at The Bomb Factory. With Mota positioned in front of the stage, Young Thug took a moment to acknowledge him directly — thanking him for his dedication and support.

Whereas the shoutout would certainly make the day of any fan, Thug went a step further and gifted Mota a black denim jacket with rhinestone spiderweb motifs from his SPIDER clothing line which debuted at a pop-up at David Adjaye’s “Dirty House” in time for London’s Wireless Festival in early July.

As Thug's Big Boy interview reveals (at the 58:22 mark), the jacket has resold for an astounding $7,000 on eBay (a mark up of $5,000 from its retail value).

"For your favorite artist to spot you out of the whole crowd full of thousands of faces and to specifically point you out and say, 'Hey, I remember you, you've been to all my shows since day one,' it's heartwarming and it's certainly a moment you'll take with you to your grave," Mota says.

The gesture proved to the first sartorial display of fan appreciation during Labor Day Weekend. Travis Scott later gifted a fan a pair of his unreleased, Texas-inspired Nike Air Force 1s after his Made In America Festival performance in Philadelphia on Sunday.
