Over the weekend, reports surfaced that Kendrick Lamar was joining the latest stars in fighting to keep concert experiences sacred by banning smartphones.

In the story originally published by The Guardian, Lamar was reportedly banning those outside of his team of photographers from taking pictures at his concerts moving forward.

Reaching out to Kung Fu Kenny’s reps, Billboard was informed that the story “isn’t true,” and that fans can continue to use their phones while at Lamar’s concerts.
