If you missed Kendrick Lamar's epic Rolling Loud set earlier this month, you're in luck. The rapper has extended his Damn tour, opting to finish the packed two-month schedule at Miami's American Airlines Arena.

Lamar will return to downtown Miami for a Saturday-night show September 2. YG and D.R.A.M. are the scheduled openers. Tickets go on sale to the general public Saturday, May 20.

Lamar has been no stranger to Miami in the past year. His highly anticipated Rolling Loud performance lived up to the hype, blending hits such as "King Kunta" and "Alright" with earlier fan favorites like "Collard Greens." In December, Lamar helped christen the new Faena Dome during Art Basel, using the space's video capabilities to perform against a backdrop of clips of George W. Bush and Bill O'Reilly.

Between December and now, Lamar's stardom has reached new heights, largely owed to the perfection of Damn, the album he released last month. Featuring collaborations with U2 and Rihanna, Damn announced Lamar as the new king of hip-hop, disappointing exactly no one — a feat that's even more impressive considering the amount of buzz he'd already generated with earlier albums To Pimp a Butterfly and Untitled Unmastered, as well as provocative performances at the Grammys.

This fall, the king will return to town. Check out the rest of his tour dates:
