Top Dawg Entertainment, TDE, is one of the powerhouses in hip-hop today. Separately their artists are among the very best in hip-hop and R&B with Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, SZA and Schoolboy Q all on the roster. However without much of a warning, the label just announced a joint tour that will feature seven acts on the roster.
The Championship Tour will feature Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, SZA, Jay Rock, Ab-Soul, Lance Skiiiwalker and Sir. There is no Isaiah Rashad though and some fans aren’t happy, though this lineup is still kind of ridiculous.
The tour will kick off on May 4 in Vancouver and will snake all across North America hitting cities like Phoenix, San Diego, Atlanta, New York, Buffalo, Toronto and Chicago, before ending in Pittsburgh on June 16.
Ticket sales begin January 26 at noon local time via Ticketmaster, though those with an asterisk will give fans an early American Express presale code January 23. See the full run of dates below.
