Rap’s king has returned to reclaim his throne and now he’s headed to Long Island. Kendrick Lamar will bring “The Big Steppers Tour” to UBS Arena at Belmont Park in Elmont on Aug. 7 with Baby Keem and Tanna Leone as support acts. Lamar will also play Barclays Center in Brooklyn Aug. 5 and 6.

After a five-year wait, Lamar just dropped his fifth studio album, “Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers,” which focuses on themes of fatherhood and family. Although he appeared on the “Black Panther” soundtrack in 2018, Lamar hasn't released a full-length album since 2017’s triple platinum, “DAMN.,” which won a Grammy Award for best rap album as well as a Pulitzer Prize for music.
