wiz khalifa and rae sremmurd 2018 concert tour

This summer is shaping up to be a big one for hip-hop fans. Piggybacking on the J. Cole and Young Thug tour announcement, Drake and Migos revealed their plans to hit the road. Now, on the heels of that exciting news comes reports that hip-hop stars Wiz Khalifa and Rae Sremmurd will be joining in the fun with their “Dazed & Blazed Summer 2018 Tour”!

The 27-city amphitheater outing will kick off on July 21 in Detroit’s DTE Energy Music Theatre. From there, the Pittsburgh rapper and Southern hip-hop duo will be bringing their energy to several major cities, including Cleveland, Chicago, Atlanta, Austin, and Dallas. The trek will wrap on August 30 in Phoenix’s Ak-Chin Pavilion.

Supporting Wiz Khalifa and Rae Sremmurd as openers for various dates will be up-and-coming rapper Lil Skies and hip-hop artist O.T. Genasis.

Fans can expect the Khalifa and Rae Sremmurd to put on the exciting high energy performances that they’re known for, featuring their biggest hits and crowd favorites. Wiz Khalifa continues to be a staple in the popular hip-hop genre with his combination of mellow and party music, including "Young, Wild & Free," "Black and Yellow," "See You Again," and many more. He plans to release Rolling Papers 2 sometime in 2018.

Rae Sremmurd will also bring the heat to the stage with their range of chart-topping hits and collaborations including "No Type," "Black Beatles," and "Powerglide," among others. They released their third album, SR3MM, on May 4th 2018.

The tour is a can't-miss for fans of the two influential and culture shaping stars, who plan to transform the venue into one epic co-headlining night.


Who Is Wiz Khalifa?


Wiz Khalifa was born Cameron Jibril Thomaz, hailing from Minot, North Dakota. His parents both served the military, which led to him moving a lot throughout his childhood, including Germany, United Kingdom, Japan, and finally Pittsburgh, where he ended up settling. Khalifa describes his upbringing in Pittsburgh as “really dark” due to the shootings and gang violence.

His stage name is derived from Khalifa, an Arabic word meaning "successor", and wisdom, which was shortened to “Wiz” when Khalifa was a young boy because “he was good at everything he did.”

Growing up, Wiz Khalifa had two dream collaborations: Snoop Dogg and Cam'ron. Since Snoop appeared on Khalifa's album Rolling Papers, the rapper says Cam'ron is the next person he'd love to hook up with. Rolling Papers (2011) was Khalifa’s major-label debut and spawned five successful singles: “Black and Yellow,” “Roll Up,” “On My Level,” “No Sleep,” and “The Race.” It debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 and was certified double platinum.

His next album, O.N.I.F.C., came out in 2012 and was backed by singles “Work Hard, Play Hard” and “Remember You.” His fifth album, Blacc Hollywood, came out in 2014 and yielded the single “We Dem Boyz.” His 2015 single “See You Again” for the Furious 7 soundtrack reached number one on the charts.

Khalifa has won the BET Award for Best New Artist, two Billboard Music Awards, and two Teen Choice Awards.


Who Are Rae Sremmurd?


Rae Sremmurd comprises of real life brothers Slim Jzmmy and Swae Lee (real names Aaquil and Khalif Brown), who were born in California but moved to Tupelo, Mississippi at an early age. The Brown brothers were raised in the notorious Ida Street housing projects, some of worst crime-ridden areas in Mississippi. Their parents split while the brothers were still young, and their mother struggled to support them. The brothers moved out as teens, seeking shelter in abandoned houses scattered throughout the area and working dead end jobs. From a young age music became a way for Slim and Swae to escape the desperation of their surroundings.

The brothers taught themselves how to record, make beats, and DJ. Swae and Slim earned the attention of fellow Tupelo native P-Nasty, a producer signed to Mike WiLL Made-It's Ear Drummer production team. P-Nasty introduced Rae Sremmurd to Mike WiLL. The hit-making producer was impressed by the brothers' energy and the quality of their music and signed the duo to his Interscope-backed label, Ear Drummer Records. “Rae Sremmurd” is actually “ear drummers” backwards.

In 2015, the duo released their debut album SremmLife, which would go on to become certified platinum. Their second album, SremmLife 2, produced their biggest single to date, “Black Beatles.” The single peaked at number one in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 while charting internationally. Other platinum singles include “No Type,” “No Flex Zone” and “Swang.”
