"The Smokers Club" tour is returning this October and November. This year's tour is being headlined by Curren$y and Method Man with support from Big K.R.I.T., Smoke DZA, Fiend, The Pricks, and Corner Boy P. The tour kicks off on October 12 at Toad's Place in New Haven, CT, hits House of Blues in Atlantic City, NJ the next night (10/13), NYC on October 14 at Best Buy Theater, and Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ the following night (10/15), before hotboxing venues across the US and Canada. All dates are listed below.
The NYC show includes Curren$y, Method Man, Big K.R.I.T., Smoke DZA, and The Pricks. Tickets for the NYC show and the Starland show go on sale Friday (8/12) at noon with an AmEx pre-sale starting Wednesday (8/10) at 10 AM.
Curren$y followed his Alchemist-produced EP Covert Coup, released earlier this year, with his sixth full length album Weekend at Burnie's, which dropped at the end of June. The album was mostly produced by Monsta Beatz and features guest spots by Fiend, Trademark, and Young Roddy. Check out the video for "She Don't Want a Man" off the album below.
Big K.R.I.T. is following his incredible Return of 4Eva mixtape, released earlier this year, with the Last King 2 mixtape on August 18. You can grab lead track "Happy Birthday Hip Hop," which features fellow Southern rapper Yelawolf at K.R.I.T.'s website while you wait for the tape to drop.

Smoke DZA will release the follow-up to his free mixtape The Hustler's Club (THC) with his album Rolling Stoned on August 30. You can pre-order the album from iTunes now. It features guest appearances by fellow Smokers Club tourmates Big K.R.I.T., Curren$y, and Fiend, in addition to Kendrick Lamar, Dom Kennedy, Bun B, and others.
