Pusha T is coming to a stage near you! The rapper announced he will be hitting the road to promote his recently released album Daytona with a 2018 summer tour.

The 22-date run will bring Pusha T coast-to-coast, starting with an August 2 show in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. From there he will hit several major cities including Chicago, Boston, Charlotte , Dallas, and Phoenix before closing out the U.S. leg with a final performance at Los Angeles, California’s Belasco Theater.

Daytona hit shelves in May 2018. Four tracks from the album have already hit the Billboard Hot 100 since its release less than a month ago. Pusha recently released two new singles; “Can’t Afford It” featuring rapper Rich the Kid, and “In Cold Blood” with singer Twin Shadow and indie rock band Alt-J.

Pusha shared the news of his upcoming trek with a post on his Instagram account, hinting that more cities may be added to the line-up in the future. The tour will feature support appearances by fellow G.O.O.D. Music acts Sheck Wes and Valee.


Who Is Pusha T?


Terrance LeVarr Thornton was raised in Virginia Beach, where he and his brother Gene ‘No Malice’ Thornton formed the hip-hop duo Clipse in 1992. With the help of fellow Virginian and record producer Pharrell Williams, the duo was signed to Elektra Records in 1997. Of the two brothers, Terrance showed more of an interest in collaborations and side projects, going on to be featured on singles by artists like Kelis and Nivea. They released their debut studio album Lord Willin’ in 2002, which sold 122,00 units in it’s very first week.

The album’s debut single, “Grindin’” became an instant hit, charting in the top 30 on the Billboard Hot 100 that summer. The song featured sparse percussive drum and woodblock arrangement, making it stand out with a sound that was unique from that of other hip-hop tracks during the time. “Grindin’” has been named a top track in the best songs of the 2000’s by Pitchfork and Rolling Stone, and was listed as the most important rap song of 2002 in Shea Serrano’s 2015 New York Times bestselling book, The Rap Yearbook.

Following the success of their first album, Clipse went on to launch a record label imprint, a hip-hop group, and released two more studio albums. In 2009, the brothers announced they were taking time off from their joint project to explore careers as solo artists.

Thornton subsequently signed with record label G.O.O.D. Music in 2010. He went on to be featured on several of the label’s artists’ projects, working with Kanye West, Swizz Beatz, and Lloyd Banks. In March 2011, he released his first solo project, Fear of God. The mixtape was followed up by its officially released EP sequel, Fear of God II: Let Us Pray in 2011.

His debut studio album, My Name Is My Name, dropped in 2013 and featured guest appearances by artists including Rick Ross, Big Sean, Kendrick Lamar, and 2 Chainz. The album debuted at the number four spot on the Billboard 200, selling 74,000 copies in its first week. While recording his second album in 2015, he announced that he had been appointed president of G.O.O.D. Music.

King Push – Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude was released in 2015 and featured the hit single “Untouchable.” The album peaked at number 20 on the Billboard 200 and rose to the number three spot on the R&B/hip-hop chart. Thornton went on to be featured on tracks by Linkin Park (“Good Goodbye”) and Gorillaz (“Let Me Out”) before returning to his own material. His third and most recent album, Daytona, was released in May 2018.
