Today in Tha Wire riding high off the momentum of his latest album, DAMN, Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar is floating like a butterfly!  K-Dot dropped his newest opus April 14,2017 and it's first week, the album sold more than 350K.  That's at least 100K more, than Drake's record-setting LP, More Life did out the gate.  Billboard announced Kendrick's album could possibly double that number in the coming days, which is an amazing thought in itself.

Did you get it yet?  Have you heard the tracks yet? This brotha is on a whole nother level!!!  Let's go down the line....D.N.A. OM-goodness!  The song, the lyrics, the video.  Whoa! Is that Don Cheadle?  Yaaaaass!

Just when you thought it couldn't get any better, Kendrick took to his
Twitter page today and announced he's launching a full out summer tour!  
THE DAMN. TOUR will take the nation by storm beginning in July.  There's 17 stops in all, and the Compton MC will share his stage with
Travis Scott and
D.R.A.M.   The first stop is Phoenix on July 12, on to Dallas, and then it'll touchdown in Houston on Saturday July 15 at the Toyota Center.  

FYI, DAMN. Tour tickets go on sale to the general public April 28!  Getem' while you can, no doubt in my mind it's gonna sellout everywhere.  Get the scoop every weekday with Tha Wire and only on The People's Station 107 Jamz.
