Ghost & Rae @ Rock The Bells 2008 (more by villageslum.com)
The Wallaby Champ aka Ghostface Killah will join forces with fellow miscreants and Wu-affiliates (loosely and not) Method Man & Redman to play an "All Points West Kick Off Party" on July 30th at Nokia Theater. Tickets are on AMEX pre-sale starting at noon on 6/11, with gen-pop getting theirs at noon on 6/13. Get 'em here. The show is one of a string of dates dubbed as "The Footprints In Hip Hop Tour", and although full details are sketch, all known tour dates are below.
Meanwhile, Raekwon is still touting August 11th as the release date for Only Built For Cuban Linx 2, and in an act of good faith, released the Blood On Chef's Apron mixtape. Cop that here. Raekwon was recently interviewed by Allhiphop.com and dropped a video for "New Wu" featuring Ghost and Meth, which is viewable below. Raekwon is hitting the road with Rock The Bells this summer.
Red & Meth are touring off of their recent LP Blackout 2!, and I am guessing, building hype for their upcoming monolithic celluloid masterpiece How High 2. Not a joke.
