If you were excited before today that you be more excited now. Kanye West has announced a brand new tour for the end of the year. The other exciting thing about it is it’s a solo tour. But that doesn’t mean he’ll have friends to back him up. Kendrick lamar is schedule to be a supporting act for the Chicago rapper.
The two biggest figures in the rap game right now, or at least the most vocal at this point, is something that is very exciting for the public. Not many people liked or loved Yezzus because it sounded nothing like the other rap on the radio. Other’s really enjoyed listening to the new sounds of Yezzy.
As for Kendrick joining the ranks of West, I think it’s a smart thing for both parties. Consider this: West is one of the biggest names in the media right now and Lamar is one of the biggest rapper in the rap world now, and not just because of Control. It’s a great way to sell tickets and to gain exposure.
The tour begins in Seattle on October 19 and will continue on until December 7 in Houston. Now word yet if the tour will extend to other countries or into the next year.
