Tyler, the Creator will be hitting the road across North America, and he’s taking Vince Staples and Kali Uchis with him for the ride.
The tour will see the former de-facto Odd Future leader stroll through 34 cities across the continent beginning next February and running right through until April. On top of Staples and Uchis supporting Tyler on the run, Teezo Touchdown will be coming along too. Tickets for the jaunt go on sale this Friday, at 9am, local time.
Kicking off in San Diego in early February, the tour will see the rapper criss-cross his way around the United States and Canada on a 34-date trek ending at the Climate Pledge Arena in Seattle, the new home of the Seattle Kraken (that’s probably not relevant, but I’ll give a shout out to the latest NHL team anyway).
The tour, of course, will include supporting acts Kali Uchis, the Latina R&B singer-songwriter who collaborated with Tyler, The Creator on her song ‘Call Me’ back in 2015; Vince Staples, who has an Odd Future connection through a couple of Earl Sweatshirt collaborations; and Teezo Touchdown, who was featured on the Call Me If You Get Lost track ‘RunItUp’.
Staples recently starred alongside Tyler in a Converse advertisement which the latter also directed. Since 2017, Tyler has worked closely with Converse and created limited-edition versions of their classic shoes with his unique spin on them. In 2019, the rapper even shared his own special silhouette, the Converse Gianno.
In the video, names including Rollins, Staples, and legendary former SNL stalwart Tim Meadows all come together at the ‘Really Cool Converse Club’. “The name was not planned out,” Tyler told Dazed. “We couldn’t come up with a name, so we decided to come up with the cheapest name, and it was funny as hell, so it worked out.”
Meanwhile, in a 7.4 rated review of Vince Staples’ eponymous new album, HipHopHero noted: “Vince Staples is a welcome return from an artist who has been sorely missed, even if he hasn’t been gone for that long. It might not be an album that will satiate the public desire for too long, but Vince Staples is most certainly an album you can sit with and explore, even if its stories are over before you want them to end.”
