Top Dawg Entertainment's Championship Tour kicks off in a matter of weeks with a stop at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, B.C. For those wise enough to avoid driving altogether, TDE is partnering with Lyft to lace attendees at select dates with an app takeover and discounted rides.

"We really appreciate our fans and want to give them the best possible experience for TDE's first tour with our full roster, providing responsible ride options to and from," TDE President Dave Free said Tuesday. Alongside the Lyft announcement, TDE shared a new Championship Tour promo video featuring Kendrick Lamar, SZA, Schoolboy Q, Jay Rock, Ab-Soul, SiR, Lance Skiiiwalker, Isaiah Rashad, and Zacari training for greatness.

Monday, Lamar became the first rap artist to win the Pulitzer Prize for music. "It shines a light on hip-hop in a completely different way," Dana Canedy, Pulitzer administrator, told the New York Times after announcing this year's honorees. "This is a big moment for hip-hop music and a big moment for the Pulitzers." Additional 2018 winners include Jerry Saltz, Caroline Fraser, Jack E. Davis, and Martyna Majok.
