Kendrick Lamar, SZA, and the rest of the Top Dawg Entertainment team is gearing up for “The Championship Tour.” Today, the label released a hilarious new promo for their upcoming jaunt.
K-Dot and Jay Rock work on tennis drills, while ScHoolboy Q and SZA have some fun on the golf course. Later, Isaiah Rashad and Lance Skiiiwalker practice kicking soccer balls, while rising singer Zacari helps Ab-Soul with his b-ball skills.
Soundtracked by a motivational ’80s-inspired song, the crew works hard to impress scouts. That includes the label boss Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith and president Dave Free. Coincidentally, the latter little homie co-directed the visual with Jack Begert.
After a grueling session of running drills and weightlifting, the crew is in a celebratory mood. But before they can qualify, they’re asked to take a drug test. While his labelmates walk away, Kung Fu Kenny says it’s no problem. “That’s an easy call,” he exclaims. “I can do that.”
Featuring K-Dot, SZA, Q, Rock, Soul, SiR, and Lance, “The Championship Tour” kicks off May 4 in Vancouver. The trek will run across North America before closing June 16 in Pittsburgh.
