Kendrick Lamar is known for his busy touring schedule, and while the TDE rapper performed at a number of festivals this year, he never did a full tour for his To Pimp a Butterfly album. That is about to change though, as Kendrick just announced on Instagram that he will be hitting the road for an intimate, eight-city long tour in the near future.
The tour is being billed as the first annual "Kunta's Groove Sessions," and will feature music, dance, performances and more. The full list of dates and locations for the tour has yet to be announced, but that should be coming very soon. Check out Kendrick's post on the tour below.
