Top Dawg Entertainment’s upcoming summer tour is approaching, and it doesn’t look like the squad is ready just yet. Despite the Black Panther soundtrack, SZA’s CTRL, and Pulitzer Prize winning rapper Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN album still racking up awards and radio spins, the TDE team still has a lot of training left to do before they hit the road for their nationwide Championship Tour in a few weeks.
In their Rocky-style training video, K. Dot, Jay Rock, Ab-Soul, SZA, Lace Skiiwalker, SiR, ScHoolboy Q, and Isaiah Rashad visit multiple fields and courts to prepare for the tour. Groovy Q and SZA perfect their swings on the golf course, while Ab-Soul tries (and fails) to shoot baskets in the gym. After SiR gets sent to the wrong gym, Kendrick and Jay practice their serve on the tennis court, while Isaiah and Lance practice running drills on the football field. Eventually, they all link up at the track to run a few laps and knock out several excruciating warm-up exercises.
TDE’s Championship Tour kicks off in Vancouver, Canada in May before making its way to major cities across North America and concluding in Pittsburgh. Watch the TDE crew mentally and physically prepare for the Championship Tour below.
