Top Dawg Entertainment has been living up to its name.
Today, TDE has announcd a 2018 concert tour featuring Kendrick Lamar as the headliner joined by nearly the entire roster of the label's acts including SZA, Schoolboy Q, Jay Rock, Ab-Soul, SiR, and Lance Skiiiwalker.
The LA-based record label / management company has turned out some of the best hip hop and R&B songs and albums over the past 5+ years with Kendrick paving the way for deals with Interscope Records and Aftermath in 2012 beginning on good kid, m.A.A.d city. Since then, Kendrick Lamar's albums have all landed on critics choice lists while bringing rare consciousness to mainstream rap. Meanwhile, Schoolboy Q has proven himself as a truly exceptional artist in his own right and SZA has emerged as one of the most daring and beloved up-and-coming R&B singers.
The general public on-sale begins as early as January 26. Check the links below for the concert you're interested in, and scroll to the bottom of the article for more information about presales.
