Drake Sets New Record For All-Time Highest-Grossing Hip-Hop Tour; Beats Kendrick Lamar Stats

With the highest-grossing rap tour ever, Drake has surpassed Kendrick Lamar in the lead spot. The ‘It’s All A Blur’ Tour by Drizzy has earned $129.7 million more than Kendrick Lamar’s Big Steppers Tour, according to Touring Data. The tour coincided with the release of Kendrick’s fifth album, Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, in September 2022. Kendrick’s ‘The Big Steppers’ Tour ran from July 2022 to September 2022, spanning 73 shows and earning $110.9 million from 929,000 tickets sold.

Drake will smash the record and set new standards because his record figure accounts for thirty of the already planned seventy-two gigs he has planned on tour. When the data for the final 42 dates is in, the $129.7 million amount is expected to increase by more than double. Drake’s venue strategy seems to be working, despite some wondering if the OVO leader should have played in stadiums before this tour began. Also, Drake and J. Cole will be touring together for 18 shows on ‘It’s All a Blur—Big As the What?’ The tour is set for 2024.

The co-headlining tour between Cole and Drake will start on January 18 in Denver, Colorado, and go through March 10 in Lexington, Kentucky. The ‘6 God’ will play the last four dates of the tour without Cole, including a gig on Long Island, located just 7.7 miles from Cole’s alma mater, St. John’s University. With the release of his ‘Scary Hours 3’ EP on November 17, Drake will undoubtedly be performing some of these new songs on the tour.
