The best rapper alive (or at least a prohibitively strong contender) is heading to Chicago in about three months. Critical and popular favorite Kendrick Lamar will headline a date at the United Center on July 27 in support of his excellent recent album, DAMN..

The Compton rapper will be supported by Travis Scott and everyone's favorite grinny pop rapper D.R.A.M.—both of whom were very good when we caught them last year.

Tickets for tour dates are available Friday, April 28 through Ticketmaster, following an American Express pre-sale on Tuesday, April 25, according to Rolling Stone.

Check out a lick of Lamar performing in Chicago, at the Pitchfork Music Festival, in 2012, and the video for recent single "HUMBLE." below.
