Look: Hip-Hop Stars Visit Emirates Stadium to Watch Arsenal v Liverpool

It seems as if all the stars are headed to the Emirates these days.

Last match-day we had the ‘Ted Lasso’ duo of Jason Sudeikis and Brendan Hunt survey Arsenal‘s commanding win over Spurs.

And this match-day we had another duo, albeit from a different field.

Arsenal welcomed a struggling Liverpool on the evening, with a chance to deliver another statement victory and reclaim pole position in the league.

The hosts were off the races immediately and managed to earn an instant advantage in the first minute through Gabriel Martinelli.

As the half progressed, the Reds grew into the game and managed to grab a leveller with Darwin Nunez.

Another twist followed as Arsenal broke the deadlock right on the cusp of halftime, with Bukayo Saka netting at the back post.

Arsenal’s dominance continued in the second half, although Liverpool grabbed another equalizer, totally against the run of play.

The game was finally won via a penalty, converted swiftly by Bukayo Saka, tying up a neat brace for the youngster.

Another high-profile game, another win for the Gunners, and of course, another star duo in the stands.

On this occasion, the celebrity attendees were rappers Kendrick Lamar and his cousin Baby Keem.

Keem, a relative newcomer in the scene, charted high with his most recent album and even picked up a Grammy for the song ‘family ties’ made in collaboration with Lamar.

His cousin needs no introduction and is known to be one of the greatest artists of his generation.

The duo went down to the pitch after full-time, with Lamar posing for a picture.

If these images of him sporting a Spurs shirt hold any weight, the 35-year-old may actually have been in enemy territory.

Keem, on the other hand, was right at home.

Aside from occasional flirtations with Stoke City, the 21-year-old has largely been a Gooner, as evidenced by this tweet from 2020.

Arsenal are already known to be the ‘culture club’ of the Premier League, and now with newfound ties to figures such as Lamar and Keem, those credentials are all but confirmed.
