While some may make the argument there's no place quite like home, the same case can be made for those who feel just as comfortable in the middle of an energetic, pulsing crowd and rapping along with every word their favorite rappers spit onstage. As it turns out, fans who prefer turning up in their respective cities before calling it a night will have plenty of opportunities to do just that as 2017 continues to unfold.

For fans of hip-hop, alternative R&B and the experimental genres that happily exist somewhere in the fringes, there is no short supply of opportunities to see some of this year's hottest artists, with new tours being announced left and right.

Although some XXL readers already have their minds made up regarding which tour stops they'll be spending their hard-earned skrilla on, other fans are learning it's becoming increasingly difficult to land on just one.

With artists such as Future, The Weeknd, Gucci Mane, Big Sean, Lil Wayne, T.I., Travis Scott, Chance the Rapper and more all hitting the road as the spring and summer months approach, there is ample opportunity for fans to cross off certain tours on their bucket lists or add another live experience under their belt to remind themselves exactly why their favorite artist is at the top of their lists.

Considering the magnitude of rappers from all over the U.S. embarking on tours in the days ahead, especially those who have been dominating the charts for majority of this year, it's safe to say that fans will be in for a slew of surprise guests as well.

Take a look at the hip-hop tours, including Future, Chance The Rapper, Big Sean and more, coming to a city near you this year in the gallery above.
