Beenie Man Ready To 'Feel It' Across America

Smilez & Southstar, Silver Cat, Kirk Davis also on Tropical Storm 2K2 Tour.

Fresh off making the highest debut for a reggae artist on the Billboard albums chart (#18), dancehall don Beenie Man is taking his show on the road.

The Tropical Storm 2K2 Tour will arrive on U.S. shores on October 1 in Providence, Rhode Island, and is currently scheduled to run through an October 30 date in San Francisco, according to the tour's promoter. Three more weeks of November dates on the West Coast and in the South will be announced soon.

Joining him on the tour are rappers Smilez & Southstar (see "Smilez & Southstar Come Up From O-Town With 'Who Wants This?' "), as well as two members of Beenie's Shocking Vibes crew, Silver Cat and Kirk Davis. Tropical Storm has already spawned the hit "Feel It Boy," a collaboration with Janet Jackson and the Neptunes that's currently at #46 on the Billboard Hot 100. The album also features a duet with Lil' Kim on the explicit "Fresh From Yard" and a hookup with fellow dancehall stars Sean Paul and Lady Saw on "Bossman."
