Grammy-nominated hip-hop artist Kendrick Lamar announced a new tour Monday, just days before he’s favored to pick up some Grammy wins.
The TDE: The Championship Tour will bring Lamar and several others from the Top Dawg Entertainment label to Raleigh’s Coastal Credit Union Music Park at Walnut Creek on May 26. Tickets go on sale at noon Friday at livenation.com and ticketmaster.com.
The bill will also include SZA, ScHoolboy Q, Jay Rock, Ab-Soul, SiR, Lance Skiiiwalker and more to be announced.
Never miss a local story.
Two years ago, they both shared Grammy nominations with Lamar for his album-of-the-year nomination for 2015’s “To Pimp a Butterfly.”
Wonder also produced a track on Lamar’s current album, “DAMN,” which is up for seven Grammy Awards this year, including Album of the Year, Best Rap Album and Best Rap Song.
That mean’s Lamar will be competing against Rapsody in two categories. This year, Rapsody, whose full name is Marlanna Evans, has two nominations of her own for her album “Laila’s Wisdom.” That is up for Best Rap Album and Best Rap Song for “Sassy.”
