As the legendary DJ Premier and Royce Da 5’9 ride the wave of their critically acclaimed PRhyme 2, the duo is gearing up to hit the road once again for a new tour. On top of that, the artists announced that they will be dropping vinyl copies of their album this week.
PRhyme will embark on a seven-city domestic tour kicking off on May 30 in Philadelphia. The tandem will travel across the East Coast, Midwest, and West Coast, wrapping up in Los Angeles on June 15.
“I look forward to getting back on the road and touring the country with Preem as PRhyme,” Royce stated with Complex. “We had so much fun making this album and having the ability to share our vision with the world via our one of a kind live show is a great reward.”
DJ Premier added, “PRhyme 2 brings another chapter of a unique union of what me and Royce present when we form our legacies together as PRhyme. It’s only right to double up both projects and light the fuse.”
The PRhyme 2 tour dates and locations are as follows:
