Pete Rock & CL Smooth have ended a 15-year absence from the road with the announcement of a 25-city tour spanning the U.S. and Canada.

The tour, which kicks off October 15 at the Howard Theater in Washington D.C., will be supported with Camp Lo as the opening act and surprise special guests for the NYC and LA stops.

After a very contentious public split in the mid 90s, the duo explained their main motivation to reunite was their fans and music legacy.

“People will finally get to hear good music and see a good show, they get to come out, have a good time and enjoy the music they loved for years,” said Pete Rock.

“It means a lot because music is the foundation of the world,” CL Smooth added. “It gives you an opportunity to know what we contributed and how inspired we were as very young men to get the opportunity to make good music.”

The tour is sponsored by and tickets can be purchased HERE.


XXL 2013 Freshman Class selection Dizzy Wright has dropped a video for the smoked-out single “Can’t Stop Won’t Stop,” off his latest mixtape The Golden Age. The track is produced by Will Power with barbershop visuals courtesy of George J. ( Geeezy Productions). The Golden Age mixtape is set for release on August 19. You can catch Wright on these selected tour dates after the jump.

Of all the music events I attended in 2011, none shined brighter than Sade’s tour. Thankfully, those that missed the magic or want to relive it can check this forthcoming project from renowed British director Sophia Muller that captures Sade’s full 22-song set.

Included with the concert will be a 20 minute documentary of behind the scenes footage. Sade: Bring Me Home – Live 2011 hits stores on May 22.
