Kendrick Lamar has been low-key on social media since announcing his creative company pgLang back in March.

Due to the recent protests over George Floyd‘s death and demonstrations denouncing police brutality, the To Pimp a Butterfly artist made a strong but subtle appearance at a peace walk in his Compton hometown on Sunday.

Kendrick was spotted incognito at a march through Los Angeles alongside NBA superstars DeMar DeRozan and Russell Westbrookjoining the list of artists hitting the streets to protest in their hometown.

On Saturday, big boss Rick Ross joined protesters in Miami, Florida, to be a voice for the younger generation.

“The reason I’m here is to show these young kids…how to move, and that’s moving like a boss,” Ross told The Miami Herald. “That’s making sure you’re seen, making sure you’re heard [and] we’re doing it in the most effective way.”

Lil Baby, T.I.Ludacris and more showed up for Atlanta on Saturday during the city’s ninth day of demonstrations for racial justice.

“There is change happening very slowly,” Ludacris told WSB-TV. “We have everyone’s ear, we have the world’s ear right now.”

He added, “it’s going take a while, but anybody who signed up to be with us in this fight, be prepared to do it for another 401 years, and that’s all I have to say.”
