Kendrick Lamar Stuns Fans with Juneteenth Concert on Amazon Prime

On Juneteenth, Kendrick Lamar broke the internet with his Amazon Prime special, “The Pop Out – Ken & Friends Concert.” The Grammy-winning rapper delivered a 90-minute set, ending with an intense performance of his Drake diss track “Not Like Us” five times consecutively.

 Lamar’s carefully curated 22-track setlist spanned his discography from his 2011 debut, “Section 80,” to his latest hits. The show opened with “Euphoria,” Kendrick’s first direct diss aimed at Drake. 

Kendrick Lamar continued with fan favorites like “DNA,” “Alright,” “Swimming Pools,” “m.a.a.d City,” and “Humble.” The concert also featured a reunion of his former rap group, Black Hippy, including Schoolboy Q, Jay Rock, and Ab-Soul.

During the show, Kendrick performed three Drake diss tracks: “Euphoria,” “6:16 in LA,” and “Like That.” A highlight was when L.A. legend Dr. Dre joined Kendrick for “Still Dre” and “California Love,” before introducing “Not Like Us” for an epic finale.

The diss tracks, particularly “Euphoria,” featured new verses that took direct shots at Drake. One line stood out: “Give me Tupac’s ring back, and I might give you a little respect,” referencing Drake’s 2023 purchase of Tupac Shakur’s ring for over $1 million at a Sotheby’s auction.

Kendrick’s relentless performance of “Not Like Us” included four consecutive renditions before concluding with a grand finale. He brought out various friends, famous faces, and members of the Bloods and Crips gangs, creating a moment of unity and Black pride. 

Among the notable attendees were NBA stars Russell Westbrook and DeMar DeRozan, as well as rappers YG, DJ Mustard, Tyler The Creator, Steve Lacy, and Schoolboy Q.

The concert marked Kendrick’s first live performance since his recent diss tracks exchange with Drake. While Kendrick’s show made waves, Drake has remained silent, except for a photo shared by a member of his OVO crew showing Drake in a “Revenge” t-shirt, hinting at a potential response.

Fans exited the Kia Forum, still buzzing from the energy of Kendrick’s powerful performance, singing “Not Like Us” in unison. The concert was a testament to Kendrick Lamar’s influence and his ability to captivate and unite audiences through his music.
