In-demand rapper Kendrick Lamar is heading out on the road this month to promote his critically acclaimed album, ‘good kid, m.A.A.d city.’ The Compton native just announced a batch of dates for his college tour.

The 32-city trek will have him rocking mostly college campuses and a few music festivals. The tour starts April 1 in Iowa City, Iowa, and wraps up June 26 in Los Angeles. Joining him on a few spot dates is EDM producer Steve Aoki.

Looking at his itinerary, the ‘Swimming Pools’ rapper will hit New York City quite a few times during his excursion. Lamar will perform at the Yahoo! Music Fest in May, followed by the Downtown Music Festival on May 10. He will also hit the stage at New York’s Governors Ball on June 7, which also features Kanye West among its headliners.
