I really don’t have to blog this considering it’s already on Kanye’s, BBC and CRS blogs but I wouldn’t feel right if I didn’t. This tour is bringing together arguably my top 3 favorite artists at the moment. When it comes to fashion and hype beast/street wear culture, Kanye, Pharrell and Lupe are THE trend setters, taste makers and style connoisseurs in hip hop today. This tour also leads me to believe that the Child Rebel Soldier album just might come out this year. Reason being, this seems to be a rare opportunity for these three to be together for a substantial amount of time to come up with concepts and flesh out ideas for the album. Maybe some of it will be recorded during this tour. Who knows?
How dope will it be when native sons Kanye and Lupe perform “Touch The Sky” in Chicago? Or when Pharrell and Ye break into “#1″? Or when N.E.R.D. plays “Maybe” and near the end Lupe springs out from the back and breaks into “And He Gets The Girl”, then straight into “I Gotcha”. Then just imagine how absolutely shut down the place will get when they all do “Us Placers”. And don’t think that they won’t have at least one new CRS song ready for the tour to whet our appetites for what’s to come when the album drops. Man, this tour should definitely be something else. The only gripe I have is Rhianna. Does she really need to be on this tour? Ugh.
So who’s going?
