Philadelphia electro-rap duo Chiddy Bang have been tapped to open for Pusha-T of the Clipse on the Bamboozle Roadshow tour, alongside genre-bending electro-rappers Ninjasonik and singer Dev.

The 17-date North American tour kicks off on May 4 in Boston, Mass., immediately following the three-day Bamboozle Festival in East Rutherford, N.J., which features Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Bruno Mars and more.

Composed of rapper Chidera “Chiddy” Anamege and producer Noah “Xaphoon Jones” Beresin, Chiddy Bang met while freshmen at Drexel University in 2008. Since then, the duo has toured the world, playing high-profile music festivals like Lollapalooza, the UK’s Reading Festival and Australia’s Parklife. Their EMI debut EP, ‘The Preview,’ was released last October featuring their breakthrough single ‘Opposite of Adults,’ which samples the MGMT hit ‘Kids.’

“We can’t wait to headline the Bamboozle Roadshow. It’s our biggest tour yet so it kinda feels like our first in a way. I’m a huge fan of Pusha — and Dev and Ninjasonik are the homies so it should be a wild one,” Chiddy said in a statement.

In addition to the tour, Chiddy Bang also revealed that they have changed the name of their forthcoming debut LP from ‘The Swelly Life’ to ‘Breakfast.’

“The reason we re-named the album Breakfast is because 1.) We Eatin, 2.) Its the most important yet most neglected meal of the day, 3.) It’s the first course on our musical journey, and 4.) I can cook really fluffy eggs — double boil technique [sic],” Xaphoon Jones explained.

The Bamboozle Festival takes place from April 29 to May 1, at the Meadowlands in East Rutherford, N.J. The Bamboozle Roadshow then runs May 4 to June 10. Click here for tour dates.
