Top Dawg Entertainment’s Kendrick Lamar is going to make it a hot summer. The hip-hop star has announced a nationwide DAMN. tour.
Early Monday, K. Dot revealed his new country country run with fellow headliners Travis Scott and D.R.A.M.

This past weekend, rap star 2 Chainz and Kendrick’s mom both co-signed DAMN.
After just a week of availability, Lamar’s album has crushed its competition.
Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. blasts in at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with 2017’s biggest week for an album: 603,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending April 20, according to Nielsen Music. That’s the most units earned by an album in a single week in nearly a year, since Drake’s Views launched with 1.04 million units in the week ending May 5, 2016. The previous record holder for 2017’s biggest week was the debut of Drake’s More Life, with 505,000 units in the week ending March 23. (Billboard)
Approached by paparazzi last week, Lamar playfully said he did not give President Barack Obama an early DAMN. listen.
Kendrick Lamar apparently didn’t return the love to President Obama, because he told us the former Prez didn’t get an advanced copy of his album like LeBron James did. Kendrick was leaving Mastro’s in Bev Hills Friday night when our photog brought up Obama, who previously praised Kendrick for having the best album of 2015. The rapper famously sent an early copy of his new album, “DAMN” to LeBron … but turns out Obama’s mailbox was empty. (TMZ)
