Kendrick Lamar's recent Pop Out concert in Los Angeles was more than just a performance - it was a historic event that united a city divided by rivalries and crowned a new King of the West Coast.

AceShowbiz - Kendrick Lamar is making waves with the triumphant success of his Pop Out concert in Los Angeles. With the dust settling, Snoop Dogg passed the torch to K. Dot, crowning him as the king of L.A. after an unforgettable Juneteenth show that unified various sections of the West Coast.

Snoop took to his Instagram on Friday, June 21, from Canada to salute Kendrick's accomplishment. "Sending a big shout-out to K. Dot and all the homies from the West that stood together unified, organized in peace [and] love," Snoop praised. "That was fun to watch. Beautiful to see all my peoples come together."

In a moment reminiscent of a coronation, Snoop declared, "K. Dot, you are the King of the West. That's the kind of s**t kings do, we unite." As an artist with three decades of experience, Snoop recognized the importance of Kendrick's message of unity and peace in L.A., even if it was just for one night.

Kendrick electrified the Kia Forum crowd with his first show since his feud with Drake, performing live debuts of tracks like "Euphoria," his verse on the Billboard Hot 100-topper "Like That," and the Mustard-produced "Not Like Us," which he performed five times consecutively.

Despite the feud with Drake, Kendrick focused on bringing together gang members from different sets and various Los Angeles luminaries on stage. "It ain't got nothing to do with no back-and-forth records," Kendrick said during his show. "It's got everything to do with this moment right here. That's what this s**t was about. To bring all of us together."

The epic concert also featured special guest performances from notable artists like Steve Lacy, Tyler, the Creator, Ty Dolla $ign, Jay Rock, ScHoolboy Q, Dr. Dre, and Ab-Soul. In its closing moments, the stage was graced by a star-studded lineup including YG, Mustard, DeMar DeRozan, Russell Westbrook, Tommy the Clown, and several gang members.

Media personality Charlamagne Tha God also acknowledged Kendrick's impact, calling him the "King of Hip-Hop" and stating, "Kendrick set the tone…He let us know that this was a victory lap, and he came there to blood and crip-walk on his enemy's head-top. And to me, the show wasn't about Drake as much it was about Kendrick Lamar becoming the undisputed heavyweight champion of hip-hop."

Reflecting on the significance of the event, Kendrick Lamar emphasized its historical importance. "This is unity at its finest…We done lost a lot of homies to this music s**t, to some street s**t. For all of us to be on this stage, together…unity from each side of L.A., Crips, Bloods, Pirus. This s**t is special man. We put this s**t together just for y'all."
