Kendrick Lamar fans, get excited! Kendrick’s highly anticipated ‘The Pop Out’ concert in Los Angeles is happening over the Juneteenth holiday, and if you didn’t score tickets, no worries. Thanks to Amazon’s Rotation brand, you can catch it live from the comfort of your home.

The event, set for June 19 at Inglewood’s Kia Forum, is organized by pgLang and Free Lunch. Tickets sold out almost immediately, which left many fans disappointed. But here’s the good news: the concert will be livestreamed on Prime Video and the Amazon Music channel on Twitch at 4 PM Pacific time.

While the full lineup of performers hasn’t been announced, DJ Mustard confirmed his presence via a social media post. This concert marks one of Lamar’s rare public appearances in recent months, signaling his gradual return to the spotlight.

In a recent surprise, Kendrick appeared at the Compton College commencement ceremony to inspire graduates. On June 7, the rapper spoke to the class of 2024, offering heartfelt words of encouragement. “I wanted to come out here just to tell y’all how much I appreciate y’all,” he began. “I’m proud of the city of Compton; I’m proud of Compton College; most importantly I’m proud of the graduates out here. That’s right, I know what it takes. You had a lot of hardship, not only in your house, in your communities, but most importantly, within yourself. And that’s the toughest thing to overcome. We still growing day by day, brick by brick, making sure we develop, not only in physical form but in the spiritual as well.”

He continued, “Seeing y’all out here, it’s not only a representation of the world, but it’s a representation of me. When I walk out in these cities, in these countries, I can be proud and say, ‘This is where I’m from.’ I still believe in Compton — Compton always been [the] future for me. I think we breed some of the most incredible individuals: creatives, intellectuals, talent. We had it since day one, that’s why I always scream this city. I traveled the world; there’s no place like this one right here. No place.”

Kendrick also took a moment to praise the younger generation, urging them to defy negative stereotypes. “And I still believe in everything we’re doing, brick by brick, I still believe. It’s time that we change the narratives. Some people tell us this generation don’t have what it takes. Gen Z — we talk about it all day. They try to pull us down and say we don’t know what we’re doing. They wrong though. You know why? Because not only [do] y’all have what it takes; y’all have something bigger: y’all have the heart, y’all have the courage to be independent thinkers. Independent thinkers — there’s nothing more valuable than that.

This degree that y’all have right here is just as big as any degree — I don’t care what school, I don’t care what institution. Compton College — this Compton degree is just as big. Now it’s all about taking these resources and taking what you learned and applying them. It’s as simple as that.”

For those who couldn’t grab a ticket, this livestream offers a fantastic opportunity to enjoy Kendrick Lamar’s performance live. Set your reminders for June 19 at 4 PM Pacific time on Prime Video or Twitch.
