Head of R&B and hip-hop for Amazon Music, Tim Hinshaw, said in a press statement via The Fader:
"As a kid from West Compton, hearing good kid, m.A.A.d city for the first time and seeing Kendrick's journey from neighbourhood hero to global superstar ignited a fire in me that I'm forever grateful for. It showed me that no matter where you start in life, hard work and dedication will put you where you hope and dream to be.
"Now, 10 years later, it's almost poetic that two kids from the same city with similar, but different dreams have landed in Paris to celebrate not just that record but Kendrick's latest revolutionary album, Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers. We're honoured to sponsor his tour and bring this show to fans around the world."
Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers was released in May of this year, quickly climbing to the top of music charts globally as Lamar's fifth studio album. The LP became No. 1 on the Billboard 200 immediately following its launch, marking it as Lamar's fourth time to debut at No. 1 with each of his previous projects.
Lamar has recently kicked off the European leg of 'The Big Steppers Tour' on 7 October in Amsterdam. After his livestream in Paris, the rapper will continue his tour in Germany, Switzerland, Belgium and Germany before making his way to the UK and Ireland.
'The Big Steppers Tour' will make an appearance in Dublin on November 13th and 14th at 3Arena.
