Earlier this week, Kendrick Lamar hosted his eagerly anticipated ‘Pop Out’ event in LA, and it was nothing short of a star-studded affair.

Kendrick was joined by a slew of celebrity friends including YG, Tyler, The Creator, and Jay Rock. The crowd went wild when Dr. Dre took the stage to perform ‘Not Like Us,’ a track that has fueled Kendrick’s viral feud with Drake.

Among the notable attendees was Dave Free, dispelling any rumors of a rift between him and Kendrick. For context, Drake had previously accused Free of fathering a child with Kendrick’s fiancée, Whitney Alford, in his track ‘Family Matters.’ However, both Free and Alford were present at the event, accompanied by Alford and Kendrick’s two children. Their appearance seemed to quash the wild claims made by Drake.

The timing of Free’s appearance is interesting, especially since Kendrick placed him at the top of the credits after the event, a move many interpreted as a direct jab at Drake. Despite this, Drake’s supporters, including DJ Akademiks, continued to stir the pot. Akademiks even tweeted—then deleted—a false claim that Free and Alford skipped the event. Screenshots of his erroneous tweet circulated nonetheless, adding more fuel to the fire.

While fans and critics alike ponder the implications of these public appearances and online jabs, one thing is clear: Kendrick and Free appear to be on solid terms, unfazed by Drake’s assertions. This latest development adds yet another layer to the ongoing narrative between these industry heavyweights.

In the end, the ‘Pop Out’ was a grand spectacle, and despite the swirling rumors and accusations, Kendrick Lamar and Dave Free showed a united front. As the hip-hop community digests these latest events, it remains to be seen how this drama will unfold.
