The pop-up will be selling limited-edition 'DAMN.' merch — and Lamar himself may also make surprise appearances.

Kendrick Lamar kicked off his Australasian DAMN. album tour this week with a standout show in Perth. On top of the tour, which is also heading to Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Auckland and Dunedin, the acclaimed hip hop artist is also headlining a sold-out Splendour in the Grass later this month.

If that wasn't enough Lamar-goodness, the Pulitzer Prize-winning artist has just announced that he's bringing his coveted DAMN. Pop-Up stores down under, too. Damn.

The first pop-up is happening in Melbourne right now, but Auckland will get its chance to nab some of Lamar's limited-edition merch later next week from 19-20 July.

While details of what exactly will be stocked at the stores are extremely vague, the rapper's pop-up has already appeared in Europe and across the US, stocking vinyl, tees, caps and hoodies. You can take a look inside his NYC pop-up here. The rapper has also made surprise appearances at many of the pop-ups, so if you're keen to grab a closer-than-row-z sighting of Lamar we suggest heading along.

If you are thinking of heading along, however, take this as a warning: there will be long lines.

DAMN. Pop Up will be open in Auckland at Loaded, 57 High Street on Thursday, July 19 and Friday, July 20 from 11am–7pm.
