Lamar is titling the show The Pop Out — Ken & Friends. It gets its name from a line in Lamar’s recent chart-topping Drake diss “Not Like Us,” in which he raps, "Sometimes you gotta pop out and show n—s / Certified boogeyman, I’m the one that up the score with ’em." The track is, for now, the last of Lamar’s Drake disses, following “Meet the Grahams,” “6:16 in LA,” “Euphoria,” and “Like That.”

“Not Like Us” became a massive hit song both domestically and internationally, and broke several records. On May 7, it broke the record for most single-day Spotify streams for a hip-hop song in the US, surpassing Drake and Lil Baby’s September 2021 collaboration, “Girls Want Girls,” which hit a peak of 6.6 million. On May 13, the song debuted at the top of the Hot 100, making it Kendrick’s fourth #1 hit and first #1 debut in his home country. Then on May 15, the song broke the record for most Spotify streams in a week in the 2020s, surpassing Taylor Swift and Post Malone’s “Fortnight” from April 2024.

Lamar announced his exclusive Juneteenth concert on his social media profiles, posting an image of a license plate that detailed the show. Ken and Friends will begin at 4pm PT.

Tickets are currently available via Ticketmaster.
