While the rapper has banned professional photographers, he has not banned smartphones. Fans are still welcome to take pictures of him with their phones. Lamar is currently touring Europe with James Blake. On May 4 he'll launch the Championship Tour in Vancouver, British Columbia with SZA, ScHoolboy Q, Jay Rock, Ab-Soul, SiR, and Lance Skiiiwalker.
