In a dream line up for hipster rap/r’n'b fans Drake, who recently drew plaudits for his divisive Take Care LP, has decided to take the BBC’s Sound Of 2012 star A$AP Rocky and Pitchfork lovee Kendrick Lamar on the road for a series of giant arena shows. However, before we get too excited A$ap and Kendrick are yet to be official confirmed for the UK leg of the tour, although they will definitely appear in the US according to MTV news.
While the line is undoubtedly great, it’s very much a surprise, as Drake hasn’t enjoyed the kind of hits and sales in the UK that he has in the US, and A$AP Rocky has yet to burst onto the UK scene in a way that would suggest their in the O2 Arena league.
Still if you like your hip hop and R’n'B enthused with soulful regrets and art house credibility then this is the tour for you.
