California radio stations are playing a mixed version of Kendrick Lamar’s “Not Like Us” featuring the live performance of Ken & Friends: The Pop Out. Kendrick’s appearance on Prime Video precedes the switch to the original version after paying homage to Tupac Shakur.

“You ain’t gonna let nobody disrespect the West Coast, huh,” Kendrick tells the roaring crowd in the radio version before the original song begins. “Oh, you ain’t gonna let nobody mock or imitate our legends, huh?”

The radio support of the live performance was inspired by this unforgettable moment in West Coast history. “It was an iconic moment for West Coast Hip Hop on so many levels,” says 24 KG, radio host at Hits 93.1 in Bakersfield, California, of the concert’s impact. “It put us back on top and showed the future of the Coast through our unity. Nobody messes with us. This is just the beginning.”

The Ken & Friends concert took place last month at the Kia Forum in Inglewood, California and was streamed worldwide on Prime Video. The concert featured a full lineup of Los Angeles rap stars including Tyler, The Creator, Ty Dolla $ign, Roddy Richh, RJMrLA, DJ Hed and DJ Mustard. The concert became the most-watched content of all time on Prime Video.

“Not Like Us” was released in May, as part of the feud between Kendrick Lamar and Drake. The track was produced by DJ Mustard and released after Drake released “Family Matters,” a response to Kendrick’s “6:16 in LA.” Drake responded to “Not Like Us” with “The Heart Pt. 6.”

Following the release of the song’s music video on Independence Day, Kendrick received more than 44 million views on YouTube, and the potentially Grammy-nominated hit is at the top of the Billboard charts.

On Wednesday (July 10), social media discovered that iPhone users were ordering their AI assistant Siri to play “Certified Lover Boy” on Spotify, and it played “Not Like Us” by Kendrick Lamar instead. There is no information on whether the hack was created by Apple or Spotify.

In other news, rumors are spreading on social media about Kendrick Lamar’s next album. Fans believe that in the video for “Not Like Us,” dates appear on various items of clothing, hinting at an upcoming album. There has been no official word yet about an upcoming album from Lamar or PgLang.
