Kendrick Lamar performs Drake diss track five times during Los Angeles concert

Kendrick Lamar performed his Drake diss track Not Like Us five times during his special live-streamed concert on Wednesday.

The Alright hitmaker brought The Pop Out: Ken and Friends to a spectacular close by performing the live debut of Not Like Us, not one or twice, but five times.

The first rendition featured Dr. Dre, who had been on stage to perform Still D.R.E. and California Love, while producer DJ Mustard appeared for one iteration. By the end of the fifth repeat, Kendrick was joined on stage by almost 30 people, including YG, Steve Lacy, Schoolboy Q and Big Boy and basketball stars Russell Westbrook and DeMar DeRozan.

"Y'all ain't gonna let nobody disrespect the West Coast, huh?" he asked at the end of his set. "Oh, y'all ain't gonna let nobody mock or imitate our legends, huh?"

He seemingly referred to Drake using AI versions of Tupac Shakur and Snoop Dogg's vocals on his diss track Taylor Made Freestyle. The God's Plan rapper took the track down after receiving a legal notice from Tupac's estate.

The special Juneteenth show, which streamed live on Prime Video from the Kia Forum in Los Angeles, concluded with a sixth instrumental version of Not Like Us as fans left the arena.

Kendrick and Drake's feud reignited this year after Kendrick appeared to diss Drake on Future and Metro Boomin's song Like That in March. They traded diss tracks back and forth for several weeks before concluding with Kendrick's Not Like Us and Drake's The Heart Part 6 in early May.

During the show, the musician performed his Like That verse and opened the show with another diss track, Euphoria.

He added in a new line, rapping, "Give me Tupac's ring back and I might give you a little respect."

The lyric referred to the fact Drake purchased Tupac's ring at auction for more than $1 million (£787,000) last year.
