After a few other festival appearances this summer, Yaeji will head out on a North American tour this fall that begins October 17 in Santa Ana, CA and currently wraps up November 7 in Philadelphia. There's currently no NYC show on the fall tour, but that may change after Panorama. Head here for all tour dates and tickets.

In addition to making a great appearance on Black Panther: The Album, Mozzy released his own Spiritual Conversations EP this year, and he hopped on a collab single with Freddie Gibbs and G Perico, "Colors."
