Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly is still among the very best rap albums released this year, but unfortunately, we still haven’t seen a proper tour in support of the ambitious LP. 

Today, Lamar has shared dates for the “Kunta’s Groove Sessions” tour, which he teased as “8 cities. 8 nights, 8 intimate shows” earlier this week. The poster also promised “Music! Dance! Performance! and More!”.

If we’ve counted correctly, there are actually 9 shows on the bill (though Washington, DC shows up twice), and Jay Rock will be opening things up on four of them. K-Dot will be backed by his band Wesley’s Theory throughout the tour.

Check out the schedule below, and check out the TDE website for info on tickets. Will you be attending?
