Kings of the Mic Tour


LL COOL J feat. DJ Z-Trip, Ice Cube, Public Enemy, De La Soul
 
Two-time Grammy®-winning recording artist LL COOL J, featuring DJ Z-Trip, will headline the Kings Of the Mic Tour, this summer’s ultimate Hip-Hop music experience. Joined by legendary artists Ice Cube, Public Enemy and De La Soul, the 26-city tour comes to St. Petersburg on Thursday, June 6.
 
This tour underscores the cornerstone of true authentic Hip-Hop music with these groundbreaking artists bringing their music to fans across generations. It comes on the heels of the April 30 release of LL’s 14th new studio album, Authentic on 429 Records/The Savoy Label Group. The album celebrates the rapper’s 30 years in music in his element: crazy club jams, tender tracks, personal tributes and hard-hitting commentary addressing the current hip-hop climate.
 
Ice Cube has been a premier cultural watchdog, astutely commenting on, examining and detailing the breadth of the American experience in uncompromising terms.  His unflinching honesty and perspective, as well as a deft comedic touch has endeared Ice Cube to several generations of fans. As a solo recording artist, Ice Cube has sold more than 10 million albums while remaining one of rap’s most respected and influential artists.
 
Public Enemy has never stopped urging to fight the power as their artistry meets with unwavering critical acclaim and legions of worldwide fans. Fans that drove their single, “Harder Than You Think,” into the United Kingdom’s Top 5 last summer prompted the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to induct the group in 2013 - their first year of eligibility.
 
American hip hop trio De La Soul is best known for eclectic sampling, quirky lyrics and contributions to the evolution of the jazz rap and alternative hip hop subgenres. The band's debut album, 3 Feet High and Rising, has been called "a hip hop masterpiece." 
 
Kings of the Mic, indeed! This tour covers all the Hip-Hop bases.
