Kendrick Lamar Continues His U.S. Tour
Kendrick Lamar Tour 2013
King Kendrick continues to kill it. After touring Europe, stopping off in New York and playing at the Roseland Ballroom (I went! NBD..), Kendrick will continue to travel, playing shows at colleges across the U.S. until early June, when he’ll make a triumph return to NY – headlining the Governor’s Ball. After that, he hits L.A. on June 29th for the BET Experience, which Beyoncé is kicking off. Holla.
Kendrick is leaving his Black Hippy homies behind and instead be joined by extreme-electro-DJ-Producer Steve Aoki. I’m sure the bass will be pumping. Though some shows are student only, most are open to the public. America! Your tuition dollars at work! Let’s just hope none of the co-eds listen too closely and realize “Swimming Pools” is actually an anti-drinking club banger…
