DOWNLOAD: Sweet Valley - "Suzuka 9 Hours" (MP3)
GZA at MHOW in June (more by Ryan Barkan)
Wu-Tang Clan member GZA, who recently performed his album Liquid Swords in NYC, has just put together a pretty amazing tour. He's taking out underdog rapper of the year Killer Mike, Sweet Valley (aka the new beat project by main Wavves dude Nathan Williams and his brother Joel [aka Kynan]), and Bear Hands (who are currently on a tour with Fort Lean which hit NYC last week).
That tour kicks off in Buffalo this September and ends with a NYC show on October 18 at Irving Plaza, which is part of CMJ. Tickets for that show are not on sale yet but check Livenation for updates. All dates on the tour are listed below.
For Nathan and Joel Williams' Sweet Valley project, the tour will double as a support run for their debut beat tape, Stay Calm, which is due out on August 7 via Fool's Gold. You can stream two tracks from that release, "Malibu Games" and "Suzuka 9 Hours," below, the latter of which you can also download above. Nathan Williams will also be joining GZA on stage at the shows, and you may remember that it won't be the first time that Nathan and GZA unite.
