Here Are the Hip-Hop Tours You Should Check Out This Winter
Whether or not Metro Boomin' suggests we trust the 2017 Farmer's Almanac, it's looking like we're about to have a long, cold winter season. Not to worry, though. 2016's biggest and brightest stars in the game are embarking on tours that are sure to give all of us something to look forward to as we grind our way back into the summer season; even if Chance The Rapper and Kanye are putting a self-imposed halt to their respective tours.
Drake, who had the year on lock down with his monster album Views, which broke sales, streaming and charting records, has formally invited his fans from across the pond to join him on his Boy Meets World Tour. The 6 God will trek from Amsterdam to Cologne with 26 dates planned.
D.R.A.M., hot on the heels of his debut album featuring the Lil' Yachty-assisted (double platinum) song "Broccoli," is also hitting the road domestically. He'll be working his way from Nashville to L.A., with stops in D.C. and New York along the way. Chi-town's Noname, who dropped her incredibly well-received debut mixtape, Telefone, this past summer, will also be on the road for an 18-date tour with stops including Philly, New York and Toronto.
TDE's Isaiah Rashad, Atmosphere, The Weeknd, Juicy J (with XO affiliate Belly), and Run The Jewels will all be coming to a city and venue near you. So while you're grabbing new Timbs and jackets in preparation for the impending snowfall, and finishing up your holiday shopping, be sure to budget accordingly to catch your favorite artists live on stage. We've taken the liberty of rounding up the season's must-see tours in the gallery above. Don't miss out.
