TDE’s Roster Is Full Of Champions. The Label Announces A 2018 Award Tour

Just 22 days into 2018 TDE appears sending a message about their top dog status in the music industry. With a Kendrick Lamar and SZA-heavy Grammy Awards airing in less than a week (January 28), and Black Panther soundtrack to follow on February 9, Top Dawg Entertainment has now announced a major spring and summer tour, and it is 100% in-house. The Championship Tour sends a unified TDE roster across the country beginning the first week of May and currently running through mid-June.

All members of Black Hippy will be on the bill, including Kendrick, ScHoolboy Q, Jay Rock, and Ab-Soul. With her Ctrl certified gold, SZA is also among the headliners. Newer label acts are involved too. SiR, who released November this past Friday (January 19), and Lance Skiiiwalker will also be part of the cross-country affair.
