In case you missed it: Kendrick Lamar has performed an epic Pop Out concert in Los Angeles, filled with special guests and his typical mastery of hip-hop. That’s not all, though: the rapper shared a brutal extra verse to his diss track against Drake, Euphoria.

Lamar opened the show with Euphoria at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles on Wednesday (19 June). In an extra verse, he rapped, “Give me Tupac’s ring back, and I might give you a little respect,” referencing one of Drake’s notable purchases, Tupac’s iconic ring, bought at auction last year.

Sotheby’s auction house called the sale “the most valuable hip-hop artifact ever sold at auction”, going above and beyond the projected estimate of selling at up to $300,000. Drake bought the ring for over $1 million.

In addition to the extra line added to Euphoria, Lamar performed Not Like Us - his most vicious diss against Drake - a whopping five times to the ecstatic response of the audience.

The show wasn’t all about diss tracks, though.

The iconic rapper also brought out an abundance of special guests, including Dr. Dre, Tyler, The Creator, YG, and more. The setlist comprised disses, plus hits like Alright, King Kunta, m.A.A.d city, Humble, Still D.R.E., California Love, and stacks more – you can find the setlist and footage of Kendrick’s wicked performance and collabs below.

Last month, Snoop Dogg chimed in on the rap saga between Kendrick and Drake, praising them both for upping the game.

“The only thing I want to say on that whole scenario is that I want to give both of them a shout-out for raising the bar as far as lyrics,” he said. “The writing has been upped since the confrontation, or whatever you call whatever they went through.”

He stayed neutral on the rest of the beef, though, going so far as to say that the allegations brought up within the various diss tracks were none of his business.

“Those are my nephews. I’m not in the middle of it. I support both of them,” he added. “That’s some personal business and not my business.”

He continued, “As far as what they did for the industry and the rap game, they made you rap again,” he said. “You can’t just mumble your way and gimmick your way to a song no more, buddy. So thank y’all.”

If you’re wondering who really won the battle, numbers-wise, Kendrick Lamar was crowned the victor, debuting at #1 on the Billboard chart with 70.9 million streams for Not Like Us.
