While I’m still hashing out my personal feelings about Drake, today I woke up to the exciting news that Top Dawg Entertainment has announced tour dates for a mega family outing of the label’s most supreme stars. With CTRL’s one year anniversary on the horizon this summer, it feels good to see her finally swinging with the majors. The Championship Tour features: SiR, SZA, Jay Rock, Ab-Soul, ScHoolBoy Q, and the king Kendrick Lamar
The choice of artists in the marquee is a bit questionable, however. For starters, TDE made the choice to feature Lance Skiiiwalker, one of the more quieter members of the TDE family. As he hasn’t released a project since 2016, I am curious as to what he brings to the table. The Chicago native was officially signed to TDE back in 2016, and even before joining, Skiiwalker appeared in the credits of Rapsody’s “Power“, Kendrick’s “untitled 04 | 08.14.2014“, and ScHoolBoy’s “Know Ya Thing“. Yet, TDE and Lance Skiiiwalker may surprise us with something at the last minute.
Then something I think many of us are wondering: Why isn’t Isaiah Rashad in this line?
