Cape Town – In a video posted on YouTube on Tuesday, Grammy nominated rapper Kendrick Lamar sends a shout out to South African fans ahead of his tour to SA in February.

Lamar, who was snubbed at the recent Grammy Awards after Macklemore & Ryan Lewis walked away with the Best Rap Album award for The Heist, will be performing three shows in South Africa.

Watch Lamar’s message to SA here:

Tour Itinerary:
7 February at The Wave House

8 February at Johannesburg Stadium

Cape Town
 9 February at the Bellville Velodrome

Tickets are available from Computicket.

Macklemore, whose real name is Ben Haggerty, sent Lamar an apologetic text after winning in the best rap album category at the Grammys saying Lamar "got robbed". He later posted the message on Instagram: "I wanted you to win. You should have. It's weird and sucks that I robbed you."
