The stars of Top Dawg Entertainment — including Kendrick Lamar, SZA, ScHoolboy Q, Jay Rock, Ab-Soul, SiR and Lance Skiiiwalker — are gearing up for The Championship Tour, which begins May 4 in Vancouver. In preparation for the North American venture, the crew shared a promo video of them “training for tour” — by practicing their skills at golf, tennis, basketball and more.
The video is a series of mishaps that begins with ScHoolboy Q placing a call to Lamar and checking on the progress of their trainees. Lamar, who is practicing tennis with Rock, tells Q that the training is going well — but his face says otherwise. When Lamar asks about the status of SZA, it’s revealed that TDE’s only female signee is “probably in the trees climbing” — a nod to her camp-themed “Broken Clocks” video. Ab-Soul even sends the wrong address for basketball conditioning to SiR, the most recent addition to TDE’s lineup.
Isaiah Rashad — the only TDE member who hasn’t been confirmed for The Championship Tour — also appears in the video and gathers the crew for football conditioning. By the end, all of the team members prove that they have what it takes to head on tour — thanks to the tutelage of TDE’s veteran artists.
