Anthony Hamilton just wrapped up a tour with Fantasia and now he’s  planning a headlining tour of his own. This fall, Hamilton will hit the road for a headlining tour with special guest Eric Benet and Lalah Hathaway. Beginning on Oct. 6th in Durham, NC, Hamilton’s four week tour will hit major cities including Detroit, Washington, DC, Nashville, New Orleans and more. That is a show fans will definitely not want to miss. For several weeks now, it’s been rumored that Adele was set to headline the 2017 Super Bowl halftime show, but turned the gig down. Her reason, she’s no dancer. During a concert in Los Angeles, Adele addressed the rumor telling the crowd that she’s been asked to do the show, but turned the offer down. She went on to say that the show isn’t about music, adding that she’s no Beyoncé. As talented as Adele is, I’d have to agree. The Super Bowl is known for high energy performances and dancers, and Adele’s ballads would put the  crowd to sleep. Legendary rapper Kool Keith has been releasing material since his days with the Ultramagnetic Mcs, the Bronx hip hop ensemble he founded  which released “To Give You Love” in 1985. Now, he’s releasing his 22nd studio album titled “Feature Magnetic” on Sept. 16 via Mello Music Group, which he produced entirely by himself under the alias Number One Producer. He’s released a third single titled “Super Hero”, featuring MF Doom. It’s great to see a hip hop pioneer continue to contribute to the music and culture. After heating up the summer  of 2016 with his sophomore effort “Still Brazy”, Compton rapper YG will be bringing the West Coast to major cities across the country on his FDT tour this fall. The tour takes its name from YG’s viral anthem “FDT (F*** Donald Trump)”, a politically charged track which takes aim at the Republican presidential nominee and was released in March. To celebrate the his forthcoming tour, YG also released the Matt Hobbs directed visual for the “FDT” remix, which features rappers Mackelmore and G Eazy. In the clip, the three rappers wave the American flag and flip their fingers at the billionaire real estate mogul.  As for the tour, the 52 city trek will include opportunities to register to vote and registered voters will receive discounts on  tour merchandise. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to families impacted by police brutality. Select cities will also host a pre-show panel discussing the 2016 presidential election. Meet and greet packages with YG are available. Presale tickets will be available tomorrow at 10:00 a.m. at 4hunnid.com.
