It’s almost a requirement these days for hip-hop artists — you drop your album and then you open up a pop-up shop to sell some themed-merchandise. Kanye’s done it. Drake has done it. Future has done it, and now, as he’s gearing up to hit the road for an extensive summer tour, Kendrick Lamar has announced a full lineup of pop-ups centered around his most recent masterpiece DAMN.
Last week, on Friday, K Dot tweeted out a link to a website THEDAMNPOPUP.com that showed a rotating outline of a map of America. Today, he and TDE have finally filled it in with a collection of dates and locations that you can pick up some DAMN, swag on a temporary basis. As expected, the single-day stores happen to coincide with many of the dates of his tour.
Not every town he’s coming to is getting a pop-up however. Only 17 cities made the cut. You can check out the locations and dates below.
