Kidz in the Hall Announce ‘Crowd Control’ Tour
Chicago-based hip-hip duo Kidz in the Hall are taking their show on the road via a 20-city ‘Crowd Control’ tour. The tour will also include fellow Chicago emcee 88-Keys plus rappers Izza Kizza and Donnis.
The alternative hip-hop group is promoting their second release ‘Land of Make Believe’ which hits stores March 9. The album features production and appearances from Just Blaze, Marcia Ambrosious and MC Lyte. Mixing hip-hop, R&B, pop and rock members Naledge and Double-O characterize the album as “extraordinary music for ordinary people.”
According to Naledge making the album is also reflective. “We’ve never taken time to look ourselves in the mirror and analyze what this industry has made us,” he said in a statement. “As a lyricist, I used this album to serve as a soundtrack to my aspirations and to my downfalls, but also as a chance to evaluate who I am as a man compared to [who] I envisioned myself to be.”
After meeting during a talent show at the University of Pennsylvania in 2000 Naledge and Double-O formed the group not long after. They released their debut album ‘School Was My Hustle’ in 2006. They have since received critical acclaim for their music and have toured alongside N.E.R.D., Gym Class Heroes and The Clipse. The ‘Crowd Control’ tour kicks off Feb. 27 in Syracuse, New York.
