21 Savage hitting the road for summer tour with DaBaby

Despite the drama surrounding his personal life this year, Atlanta rapper 21 Savage is getting back to the music with a summer tour.

The “21 Savage I Am>I Was” tour, in support of his album of the same name released in December, will kick off July 10 in Oklahoma and wrap in his hometown Aug. 16 at the Coca-Cola Roxy. He will be joined by North Carolina rapper DaBaby for most dates on the tour. 

Tickets for the Atlanta show are $55-$70 and will go on sale at 10 a.m. May 10 via www.livenation.com

This will mark the biggest headline tour of 21 Savage’s career, which began with the 2014 release of his debut single, “Picky.” His No. 1 hit “A Lot,” from the “I Am>I Was” album, has streamed nearly 200 million times on Spotify and been certified as platinum (more than 1 million in sales and streaming).

The rapper, born Shéyaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, was a steady presence in headlines earlier this year when he was arrested and held in immigration detention for overstaying his visa; 21 Savage is a citizen of the United Kingdom and his deportation case is still pending. 

21 Savage has also been active with his Bank Account Campaign and various charity events in the Atlanta community.
