Kendrick Lamar and Baby Keem have reunited for a new song entitled “The Hillbillies.” The track, which was produced by Evilgiane, comes with a music video co-directed by Neal Farmer and pgLang.
“The Hillbillies” samples Bon Iver’s non-album single “PDLIF.” The song features both MCs comparing themselves to soccer legends, with K.Dot labeling himself Messi and Keem referring to himself as Neymar. The video also features a cameo from Tyler, The Creator. Check it out below.

Vegas’ own The Killers will come circle from the festival’s first edition – which it also headlined – and top the bill on the opening day on September 22, closing out a day of performances from the likes of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Inhaler, Slayyyter, Raye, and more. Lamar will then headline on the Saturday (September 23), following sets from The 1975, Reneé Rapp, The Rose, and others. He last performed at the festival in 2015, when he also headlined.
