Kendrick Lamar Debuts “Not Like Us” & “Euphoria” During “The Pop Out: Ken & Friends” Show

Rapper Kendrick Lamar made a triumphant return to the stage last night at the Kia Forum in California, where he headlined a special concert in honor of Juneteenth. The event, which was live-streamed by Amazon Music on its website and Twitch, marked Kendrick’s first performance since his public feud with Drake earlier this year.

One of the highlights of the evening came when Kendrick debuted his Drake diss track “Euphoria”, which ignited the crowd into a deafening singalong. In the song, Kendrick called out Drake for purchasing one of Tupac‘s rings at an auction, demanding its return as a sign of respect. The performance was a bold statement from Kendrick, who has never shied away from addressing social issues and conflicts in his music.

Throughout the night, Kendrick delivered a career-spanning setlist that included hits like “DNA.”, “ELEMENT.”, “Alright”, and “HUMBLE.”. He also brought out special guests Jay Rock and ScHoolboy Q.

One of the most unexpected moments of the night occurred when Kendrick Lamar welcomed Dr. Dre to the stage for a performance of “Still D.R.E” and “California Love”. The crowd erupted with excitement as Dr. Dre delivered his iconic verses, and then surprised everyone by whispering the haunting line, “Pssst, I see dead people” during “Not Like Us”. Kendrick then proceeded to perform “Not Like Us” a staggering five additional times, bringing the total number of performances of the song to six.

Among the attendees at the concert were NBA stars LeBron James, Rick Ross, James Harden, Russell Westbrook, Coby White, and DeMar DeRozan, who all showed their support for Kendrick’s return to the spotlight.
