21 Savage Announces I Am > I Was Tour With DaBaby
On Tuesday (May 7), 21 announced that himself and the Charlotte, N.C. rapper will embark on a tour in support of 21's gold-certified 2018 album, I am > I was, beginning in July.
The 20-date trek will kick off in Oklahoma City on July 10, and hit major cities like Houston, Los Angeles, New York, DaBaby's hometown of Charlotte, N.C. and more before wrapping in 21's longtime home of Atlanta in mid-August. This is the Slaughter Gang rapper's biggest headline run to date, and quite a triumphant one at that, considering the legal trouble he was embroiled in just a few months ago.
As previously reported, 21 was arrested in February by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and held in custody for nine days for being an illegal immigrant from the United Kingdom. He was eventually released on bond, and in April, his deportation hearing was postponed with no new date set. His lawyer, Charles Kuck, believes a rescheduled date won't happen for some time—but clearly, he's able to move freely throughout the country in the meantime.
Check out the full list of 21 and DaBaby's tour dates below. Tickets will be available this Friday (May 10) via LiveNation.
