Watch Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q and the TDE Crew Prepare for Their Championship Tour
Top Dawg Entertainment is going for the chip, and when you're in pursuit of a W, you need nothing less than a rigorous training camp—or, at least, an elaborate promo video that looks like one.
On Tuesday (April 17), the folks at TDE unloaded a hilarious new video promoting their forthcoming Championship Tour, which will feature the likes of Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, SZA, Sir, Lance Skiiiwalker and, on select dates, Isaiah Rashad.
Inspired by Rocky, TDE's new promo video sees Kung Fu Kenny, ScHoolboy and the rest of the collective jump into a pretty serious training camp. In the clip, we see SZA roaming in the woods while ScHoolboy plays golf. There's more where that comes from, but we'll let you see the rest of the video, which was made in collaboration with Lyft and directed by Jack Begert and Dave Free of the little homies, for yourself below.
In an effort to promote safe transportation to and from concerts, TDE is setting up a Lyft takeover where they will serve up discounted rides for select show stops. It's all in service of the fans.
"We really appreciate our fans and want to give them the best possible experience for TDE's first tour with our full roster—with providing responsible ride options to and from," TDE President Dave Free says.
