Chance the Rapper has announced his Magnificent Coloring Tour, which will travel world wide, to support his Coloring Book mixtape.
According to SPIN, in a tour tease, the rapper announced that “special guests” will be brought with him, which could really be anyone considering the extent of his contacts in the music industry.
Pre-sale for his tour today began early on June 21 via his website and was officially announced via the rapper’s Instagram account. The tour will begin in early September (Sept. 15) and will run through the US until late October (Oct. 21). The European and Australian dates of the tour have not yet been announced, but are slated to be soon.
The tour will hit major cities in the US, including San Diego, California, Los Angeles, California, Las Vegas, Nevada, Denver, Colorado, Kansas City, Missouri, Chicago, Illinois, Detroit, Michigan, Toronto, Ontario, Boston, Massachusetts, New York, New York, Washington, D.C., Raleigh, North Carolina, Atlanta, Georgia, Miami, Florida, New Orleans, Louisiana, Houston, Texas, Dallas, Texas, Phoenix, Arizona and San Francisco, California.
In other Chance the Rapper news, the rapper was attacked by the New York Post back in April for music that "denigrates" women and writer Phil Mushnick will certainly not be buying tickets for the upcoming tour. The article, published in the Monday edition, centered around the up-and-coming rapper being named ambassador for the Chicago White Sox.
The writer focused on the 2013 song "Smoke Again," which apparently presents the rapper as a negative role model for Chicago children, quoting some of the lyrics in the op-ed.
"He's 22, unmarried with a child, grew up in suburban Chicago. His father had been a political operative for Chicago Mayor Harold Washington, then for Illinois Senator Barack Obama and now for Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel," Mushnick wrote in the article.
He is further quoted as writing that the rapper is a "pro-forma, no-upside, can't-expect-better-from-us, women-denigrating, blood-on-the-breeze rap. He's especially fond of dope and regards young women as a sub-species in over-and-out service to his immediate libidinous whims, especially oral sex."
