controversial “I’m Not Racist” rapper Joyner Lucas announces tour

Joyner Lucas

Since we last wrote about Worcester, MA rapper Joyner Lucas, he’s gone viral for his “I’m Not Racist” video, which not everyone is loving. To quote Damon Young’s critique of it:

The song and the video is based on [the] faulty premise […] that white people’s race-related gripes and black people’s race-related gripes are equal—equally justified and deserving of equal time and attention. They are not. There is no conversation that needs to happen between the races in order to create some measure of truce and racial conciliation. The only conversation that can do that is white people talking to other white people to try to find a way to be less awful to black people. (Also, saying “Hey, stop discriminating against and hating and killing us” is not asking for a truce. Just for them to stop doing what they’re doing so we can breathe.)

Joyner has more recently been in the news for his remix of Lil Pump‘s “Gucci Gang,” on which he disses Lil Pump himself. “What’s a lil pump to a rocket flame? Turn your pink dreads into pocket chains,” he raps. You can listen below.

Joyner has also now announced a tour with Dizzy Wright, who released two new albums in the past few months, The Golden Age 2 and State of Mind 2. The tour includes a NYC show on February 16 at Gramercy Theatre. Tickets for that show go on sale Thursday (12/7) at 10 AM with Live Nation/Music Geeks presales starting Wednesday (12/6) at 10 AM. All dates are listed below.

Along with the Joyner Lucas video and Lil Pump remix, watch the video for Dizzy Wright’s “Outrageous” (ft. Big K.R.I.T.) from The Golden Age 2, below.
