Fellow Def Jam MC and Meth’s longtime rap partner Redman will also be joining the bill, titled as The Foot Print in Hip Hop Tour. Set to kick off in Asheville, North Carolina on July 22, the rappers’s bus will make stops in cities like Washington, D.C., Baltimore, New York, New Orleans, Houston, Dallas, Austin, Las Vegas and L.A., before their last show in San Fransisco on August 16.
Meth and Red will be promoting the release of their latest disc, Blackout! 2, the sequel to their multi-platinum selling 1999 debut, while Ghost will be plugging both his greatest hits collection, Ghostdeini The Great released last December, as well as his upcoming R&B album,The Wizard of Poetry.
In related news, Tony Starks recently announced plans to release his first comic book. Following in Meth’s footsteps, the book entitled Cell Block Z, will be published by Hachete Book Group who put out the Iron Lung’s self-titled graphic novel last year.
