This summer is about to get a whole lot hotter for Yo Gotti…
The multiplatinum Memphis rapper and CMG mogul joins the blockbuster lineup of The Endless Summer Tour 2016 co-headlined by G-Eazy and Logic and also featuring YG. Taking over amphitheaters and pavilions across North America, the jaunt begins on June 28 at Gexa Energy Pavilion in Dallas, TX, rolls through major markets coast to coast, and eventually comes to a close on August 5 at Xfinity Theatre in Hartford, CT. The full itinerary can be found below.
2016 has officially become “The Year of Hustle.”Yo Gotti recently unleashed his latest full-length album, The Art of Hustle [CMG/Epic Records], which bowed at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 upon release—his highest chart entry yet. Its inescapable breakout single, “Down in the DM” just garnered RIAA Certified Gold status for digital sales in excess of 500,000. Meanwhile, the hilarious music video has racked up over 36 million YouTube/VEVO views and counting.
Charismatically continuing a tradition of larger-than-life visuals, Yo Gotti premiered the music video for “Law” [feat. E-40]. Watch it HERE!
Giving The People’s Court, Judge Judy, and The People Vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story a run for their money, he turns a courthouse upside down with help from Bay Area legend E-40 and all kinds of “questionable evidence.” In less than a week, the clip is already about to cross the 1-million mark on YouTube/VEVO. Moreover, “Law” is shaping up to be another smash from The Art of Hustleas it quickly climbs Urban Radio too.
Yo Gotti rose from one of the underground’s most respected talents to a mainstream force. Following the release of The Art of Hustle, he appeared on The Real for a deep and personal interview, performed on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!, and debuted his documentary Born Hustler on BET Jams in addition to covering the current issue of The Source Magazine as well. Check out his performance of “Down in the DM” live at the Fader Fort from SXSW! In a recent feature, Billboard praised him writing, “The Art of Hustle is Yo Gotti’s way of reaffirming the notion that listeners are going to support your music if you’re authentic,” adding, “Yo Gotti has found success in maintaining his street credibility while crossing over commercially.” Rolling Stone called his rise “Remarkable.”
Yo Gotti has gone from the King of Memphis to hip-hop royalty this year. Hustle on…
