Harlem, N.Y.’s very own A$AP Rocky, is known for his southern-inspired brand of raps paired with some East Coast swag. On the other hand, there’s Tyler, The Creator, a Los Angeles-bred rapper prone to stepping outside the box and often has dark undertones in his raps. The two seemingly opposite rhymers are teaming up to take their talents on the road.
The juxtaposition can also be seen in their first tour promo photo, in which A$AP has a mouth full of food while the Odd Future leader holds a pancake over his face, peering out of two holes cut into the breakfast food (classic Tyler).
Both artists are rock stars in their own right and have developed an eclectic and unique hip-hop audience, so it really makes perfect sense for them to head out on a performance trek. The two plan to travel to nine cities on the Rocky and Tyler Tour and promise to add more dates.
Unfortunately, you won’t get to see artists from the A$AP Mob or Odd Future perform. Instead, they’ll be joined by rappers Danny Brown and Vince Staples.
A$AP Rocky previously had a bit of beef with Odd Future member Hodgy Beats in 2011, but it was quickly squashed after the Harlem rapper said he wasn’t looking for controversy.
Fans can grab their tickets on Friday (Aug. 7), which will likely be on sale through the tour website.
