Florida’s XXXTentacion may be one of the most problematic rappers around, but all of that controversy isn’t stopping him from achieving success and continuously growing his fanbase exponentially. He’s one of the most talked about acts around at the moment and now he has officially invaded Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN tour thanks to D.R.A.M.
Both D.R.A.M. and XXXTentacion posted the surprise appearance on their social media accounts, with D.R.A.M. saying “shout out to the homie @xxxtentacion for coming out #DAMNtour” on Twitter, with XXX simply adding “Damn, lol” on Instagram.
It’s an odd pairing for sure, and with as maligned as XXX has been and as far on the other end of the spectrum as he is from K. Dot it’s a shock to see them in the same venue together let alone rocking the same stage but here we are. As for D.R.A.M. and XXX’s connection, it’s unknown at the moment, but with D.R.A.M. offering XXX this opportunity there may be some sort of collaboration on the way as they’re clearly friendly.
According to HotNewHipHop this is the second DAMN tour stop in Los Angeles, after hitting the Staples Center just a few days ago, and that was a star-studded affair as well as Beyonce and Blue Ivy graced the arena with their presence. The second Staples show wasn’t listed in the first set of dates K. Dot announced, nor the second group with YG, but seeing as it’s his hometown, him doing additional shows in LA would make sense.
