A few months have passed since Pusha T released his critically acclaimed album DAYTONA.
Throughout the month of August, King Push was on the road for his Daytona Tour, which featured some help from other G.O.O.D. Music names Sheck Wes and Valee serving as the openers. Though some fans were disappointed that he didn’t get to hit every city on the first leg of his tour, Pusha T has just announced the answer to everyones prayers: The Daytona Tour Part 2.
The VA legend will be coming to a city near you this fall on the second installment of his tour. The rapper excitedly announced the dates on Instagram on Wednesday, also revealing that Phony Ppl will be supporting him as the tour openers for the rapper’s non-festival dates.
Pusha’s tour kicks off in Chicago on November 3rd before concluding in New York on November 25th. He’s also set to appear in the Windy City at the G.O.O.D. Music heavy Red Bull Music Festival along with a performance at Camp Flog Gnaw in Los Angeles.
Beside the excitement over the announcement of the tour itself, many die-hards were head-over-heels to find out that Phony Ppl would be joining Pusha T for the 13-city ride. The group posted the news to their Instagram page and generated some awesome reactions, mostly consisting of people being over-the-moon that a bigger artist like King Push is bringing along local legends with him across the country.
Phony Ppl has been a favorite among New Yorkers (and people with good taste all around the globe) for a long time now, even getting a lot of attention from Tyler, The Creator over the years.
Back in 2015, he tweeted the band directly thanking them for songs off of their project including, “Somehow,” “Someday,” “Lover,” and “Helga.” He also included them on a list of favorite songs with greats like Donald Glover and Alicia Keys.
