Kendrick Lamar and his cousin Baby Keem capped their first combined performance as the Hillbillies last night (Nov. 11) at the Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival at Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium by welcoming event founder Tyler, the Creator for the live debut of the song “The Hillbillies.” The Bon Iver-sampling track was released online as a one-off in late May, and its amusing music video also sports a cameo from Tyler.
“The Hillbillies” was the last of a 23-song set, which found Lamar and Keem performing favorites from throughout their combined catalogs such as opener “Family Ties,” “Orange Soda,” “Honest,” “Swimming Pools (Drank),” and “Humble.” It remains unclear whether the single and last night’s performance presage a new release from either rapper, separately or together. Lamar’s latest album, Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers, came out in 2022, while Baby Keem’s most recent project, The Melodic Blue, arrived in 2021.
