Two of Hip Hops hottest emcees, Fabolous and Pusha T are hitting the road together on their “Life is So Exciting Tour.” The tour is set to kick off on April 24 in Providence, RI and last for six weeks, well into June. MTV Jams is presenting the tour, headlined by two of the biggest current mixtape rappers.
The tour is kicking off at a great time as the Spring season is just beginning amd will be a 30 city tour that will stop in both the United States and Canada. The tour, “Life is So Exciting,” is named after a track that is featured on Fabolous latest mixtape the S.O.U.L Tape 2.
Fabolous whose moniker is “Funeral Fab” is a Brooklyn native that is known for his gritty lyrics and all black fashion. His latest compilation the S.O.U.L Tape 2 contains remakes of Rihanna’s “Diamonds” and Scarface’s “Guess Who’s Back” and features appearances from artists such as J.Cole and Pusha T.
The S.O.U.L Tape 2 contains material that gives fans an insight into Fabolous most meaningful relationships as well as how he has grown as a person and an artist. He has not released a studio album since 2009.His sixth album Loso’s Way 2: Rise to Power is scheduled to release in April. The album will contain features with Future, Rick Ross, Chrisette Michele, Ne-Yo and Nas.
Although Pusha T, whom is a Virginia native is yet to give us an album, he has laid some of the hottest verses on songs that have dropped this year. His recent mixtape “Wrath Of Cain” still has the streets buzzing with hits such as “Blocka” and “Millions”, featuring MMG captain Rick Ross. Not having released an album yet, he shows us that he can still create good music and generate a buzz. Wrath of Caine was an 11 track mixtape that helped Pusha T pull from under G.O.O.D Music’s shadow. The mixtape featured artists such as; Wale, French Montana, and Troy Ave. My Name is My Name is scheduled to release in May.
Both Fabolous and Pusha T are using this opportunity to expand their fan base and promote their albums that are soon to drop this year. This will be Fabolous sixth studio album and Pusha T’s debut. These two artists have done great things this past year, but the best is yet to come. The tour will end June 1 in Oshawa, Ont., so those who missed it will be disappointed.
