With tickets for Kendrick Lamar’s first Australian tour selling out in a matter of hours in Sydney and Melbourne, Niche is thrilled to announce Lamar will now appear in larger venues to meet demand for this incredible artist. All tickets purchased for any show will remain valid in that city.
Kendrick Lamar (born June 17, 1987), is from Compton, California and is currently signed to Top Dawg, (Dr Dre’s) Aftermath and Interscope/Universal. A member of hip hop supergroup Black Hippy, along with fellow West Coast rappers and label mates Jay Rock, Schoolboy Q and Ab-Soul, Lamar first gained major attention after the release of his fourth mixtape, Overly Dedicated in 2010. The following year he released his first independent album Section 80 to critical acclaim. Released exclusively through iTunes, it was instantly ranked as one of the top digital hip hop releases of the year.
Across his career Lamar has amassed a large following and has already worked with Dr. Dre, Game, Drake, Rick Ross, Talib Kweli, Busta Rhymes, E-40, Warren G, Bun B, Tech N9ne, Lil Wayne and Lady Gaga among many other artists. His major label debut studio album good kid, m.A.A.d city, is out now.
The album has spawned the crossover hits The Recipe and Swimming Pools (Drank), which have further propelled his status as a supreme MC who crosses over to previously disparate fan bases. Before the release of ‘good Kid…’ Lamar also dropped the Just Blaze produced Compton and the Hit Boy produced ‘Backseat Freestyle,’ showing even more diversity to his output.
Niche Productions is thrilled to announce the debut Australian tour of this phenomenal artist Kendrick Lamar. Do not sleep on these shows!
