Scratch any plans you had of going to the Survival of the Illest Tour 2 featuring Cam'ron, N.O.R.E. and Foxy Brown — it's been cancelled. However, you can still catch Cam and N.O.R.E. as they go out with M.O.P. and NAAM Brigade on the Paid in Full Tour.
The outing kicks off Thursday (October 10) in Atlanta and ends on November 10 in Geneseo, New York.
Damon Dash announced the tour, which ties in with the October 25 theatrical release of the Roc-A-Fella film "Paid in Full" and its double-album soundtrack, which drops on November 5, at a press conference on Wednesday. M.O.P.'s long-talked-about move from the Columbia Records family to the Roc was also announced at the event.
"We're going to go out and do what we do, that hardcore M.O.P. sh--," said Laze Elliott, who helps guide the careers of the Mash Out Posse.
There may be another signing down the road — Dash tipped his hand that he was pursuing Midwest motormouth MC Twista.
Twista appears with team Roc on the double "Paid in Full" album. The first disc consists of old-school classics such as Eric B and Rakim's "Paid in Full," Special Ed's "I Got It Made" and Phil Collins' "In the Air Tonight." The second CD consists of all new releases from artists on Roc-A-Fella including the underground Diplomat hit "I'm Ready" and "Roc Army," a posse cut with Jay-Z, Cam'ron, Freeway, Oschino and Sparks.
