Kendrick Lamar marked his debut live performance of his viral Drake diss tracks with a star-studded one-off concert titled “The Pop Out — Ken and Friends.” The Juneteenth concert, presented by pgLang and Free Lunch, featured a long lineup of iconic artists, mostly from Los Angeles and California, who performed in Lamar’s hometown at the Kia Forum.

While the concert — which featured performances from Dr. Dre, Tyler, the Creator, Schoolboy Q, Ty Dolla $ign, Jay Rock, Ab-Soul, dancer Tommy the Clown and others — was a love letter to West Coast hip-hop culture, the highly anticipated show went viral for Lamar performing “Euphoria” and “Not Like Us,” two of the four diss tracks the 37-year-old released amid his heated lyrical war with the Canadian-born rapper.

The event was star-studded, with NBA players LeBron James (who is mentioned in Lamar’s “Meet the Grahams’ track), James Harden, DeMar DeRozan and Russell Westbrook in attendance. A few celebs with their own Drake beefs were also at the show. Rick Ross, who dropped a Drake diss song of his own called “Champagne Moments,” and The Weeknd, who was called out on Drake’s “Push Ups” rap, were reportedly there.

Additionally, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s 11-year-old daughter, North West, was at the concert.

While Lamar performed several of his classic hits — including “Loyalty,” “ELEMENT,” “Alright,” and “Swimming Pools” — it was his first live performances of “Euphoria” and “Not Like Us” that captured the internet’s attention.

The Pulitzer-winning rapper opened up his set with “Euphoria,” during which he surprised the audience with a new verse for it.

Lamar used “Euphoria” to poke fun at Drake’s legacy as a hip-hop artist and numerous feuds over the years — including his unforgettable beef with rapper Pusha T that led to the reveal that Drake had a son with adult film star Sophie Brussaux, Adonis, now six years old.

“Give me Tupac’s ring back and I might give you a little respect,” Lamar rapped on Wednesday, referencing the ring previously owned by the late Tupac Shakur that was purchased by an undisclosed buyer at an auction and revealed to be Drake last year.
