Dipset Announces Pledge of Allegiance Tour
Dipset fans nursed their hangovers on Jan. 1 with the news that the Harlem crew would be reuniting for a new EP and hitting the road for a tour. Following new music and a takeover of Hot 97 a few days later, Dipset fell back into the abyss and the dreams of a reunion seemed to hang in the balance.
But today is the day.
On the official Dipset Instagram page, a flyer popped up (because how else would they make the announcement in 2015?) with seven confirmed dates for the Pledge Of Allegiance Tour and a promise of more to come. Funkmaster Flex will join the tour as the DJ and allegedly host Dipset's upcoming EP. The confirmed dates are as follows:
02-24 New York, NY - B.B. King Blues Club
02-27 Elizabeth, NJ - Club Allstar
02-28 Brooklyn, NY - CPAC
03-13 New Haven, CT - Toad's Place
03-19 Austin, TX - SXSW
03-20 Providence, RI - Lupo's Heartbreak Hotel
03-29 Miami, FL - LIV
After countless internal beefs, breakups and public spats between the core members, it's great to see the group put their differences aside for their hardcore fans. Individually, the crew has been putting out music--especially Cam'ron, whose First Of The Month series held Killa fans over for five months--but there are few groups who have the impact and chemistry on wax that Dipset brings when they get together.
