Atmosphere To "Paint The Nation" With New Tour


Having given David Letterman's shit a bright, yellowish hue (and doing a pretty great rendition of chart-hit "You", with some help from P.O.S.), hip-hop duo Atmosphere have announced that they're about to give the nation another veritable golden shower of live music. The rapper/DJ just announced their new full-length tour to support their latest LP, When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold.

Although, these days, it seems that Atmosphere have gotten a hold of that miracle berry stuff, because their lemons keep getting sweeter and sweeter. This is the second tour in support of Gold, one that will span over 50 dates, with fellow Rhymesayers Abstract Rude and Blueprint along for the ride as openers.

Here they be:

Bill -
I think what usually happens is that Atmosphere announce a tour with no MPLS dates, then add a huge, tour-closing bash a couple weeks into it. I believe that's what happened with the first leg of the tour.
