Top Dawg Entertainment's taking over for 2018 and beyond. Today (Jan. 22), just a couple weeks after revealing that Kendrick Lamar and Anthony "Top Dawg" Tiffith were producing the official Black Panther movie soundtrack, the label announces The Championship Tour. The trek will find K. Dot, ScHoolboy Q, SZAJay Rock, Ab-Soul, SiR and Lance Skiiiwalker traversing North America as they perform in front of one packed audience after another.

In case you didn't know, this a really big deal. Kendrick Lamar is perhaps the world's greatest rapper, and he's got the critical and commercial success to back up that claim. ScHoolboy Q is one of the more well-rounded rap stars of today, and he's gearing up to drop a new project this year. SZA had what was easily one of the biggest breakout years of any artist in 2017, dropping her critically acclaimed Ctrl album and becoming a legitimate superstar overnight. Jay Rock, Ab-Soul, SiR and Lance Skiiwalker are also up to some big things.

Tickets for the all-star tour will go on sale on this Friday (Jan. 26) at 12 p.m. local time. American Express® Card Members can buy tickets before the general public for select cities beginning Jan. 23 at 10 a.m. local time through Jan. 25 at 12 p.m. local time.*
