Earlier this year, Lamar and Baby Keem surprised their fans with ‘The Hillbillies’, a new drill-inspired song that sampled Bon Iver. The single was the pair’s tenth collaboration together, following the Grammy-winning ‘Family Ties’ and 2021’s ‘Range Brothers’ and ‘Vent’.
In the video for the song, there was also a cameo from Tyler, The Creator, who flashes a button to the camera at one point that reads “Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival 2023” – the first unofficial announcement that Lamar and Keem would appear Tyler’s annual LA festival.
That proved true last night when all three arrived on stage for a rendition of the track. You can watch the moment here:
Camp Flog Gnaw will make its return after a quiet few years, the reasons for which Tyler’s manager Chris Clancy previously said were “really not that deep”.
“Tyler toured all year and was busy with a number of projects. Reading the tea leaves and what’s happening with festivals coming out of the pandemic, we thought it would be best to come back next year,” he said.
