Here’s a “strange, but true” fact that is truly wild to think about: Despite being famous since they were just barely in their 20s, Bobby Shmurda and Rowdy Rebel have never gone on tour. The reason for this: In December 2014, at the height of the mania for Bobby’s hit “Hot N****,” Bobby, Rowdy, and the rest of their crew, GS9, were arrested and charged for gang activity under the RICO Act. In 2016, both rappers took plea deals in exchange for five and six-year sentences, respectively, effectively curtailing their thrilling rise to stardom.
Both were released recently and have had an inspiring comeback that was unfortunately marred by label conflict on Bobby’s side, leading to him splitting from Epic Records and striking out independently with Roc Nation. However, they aren’t letting their newly split-label situation stop them from finally having the triumphant tour they always deserved. This week, they announced their upcoming tour, the Bodmon Tour, with Bobby as headliner supported by Rowdy (oddly enough, Rowdy’s actually the only one to have dropped his full-length debut, Rebel Vs. Rowdy, which he did in July, although Bobby dropped the Bodboy EP in August).
The two New Yorkers are making up for lost time, setting out in Maine in October and running through December in Fort Lauderdale, FL. You can check out the dates below.
