The Hip Hop Tour of the Year just got bigger as 2 Chainz will be joining the all-star lineup. The six-time Grammy-nominated artist will be co-headlining the tour’s stops in Atlanta and Greensboro. The addition of 2 Chainz along with Rick Ross, Jeezy, T.I. Yo Gotti, Lil Kim, Boosie Badazz, and Dj Drama solidifies this as a “MUST SEE” event Friday, April 24 at State Farm Arena.
The show is presented by We Are Live Entertainment, and tickets are on sale now at Ticketmaster.com or at the State Farm Arena box office.
Ross, who’s 10th album Port of Miami 2 made it to No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 200 chart and topped the publication’s Top R&B/Hip Hop rankings after its release in August, is a co-headliner for the blockbuster show. Since his debut single “Hustlin” exploded on the scene – it was the first mastertone ever certified platinum by the RIAA before the album it was on had been released, according to Ross’ website – the rapper and impresario has seen five Billboard Top 200 #1 debuts and three #2 debuts, four Grammy Award® nominations, and made the cover of Rolling Stone twice.
Jeezy and T.I. both share connections with Atlanta, as well as having won BET Viewer’s Choice Awards for collaborations with Rihanna – Jeezy for 2008’s I’m So Hood and T.I. a year later for Live Your Life. Those are far from the only honors they have won – T.I. has been nominated for Grammy Awards 19 times, taking home three.
Other official tour dates to be announced in the coming weeks.
