Even with the breakout success of Thank Me Later under his belt, [artist id="2545682"]Drake[/artist] isn’t slowing down this year. He’ll embark on his Light Dreams & Nightmares Tour in September, kicking off the tour with two dates in Miami.
A string of dates posted on Drizzy’s October’s Very Own blog on Thursday show that the rapper will be on the tour grind until November. A rep for the Clipse, confirmed to MTV News that the Virginia duo will support Drake on the multi-city U.S. tour.
The Toronto MC has spent much of 2010 living on the road. He crisscrossed the U.S. on his eco-friendly Away From Home Tour , which kicked off in April and hit colleges around the nation. Drake also showed his hometown a lot of love with his inaugural OVO Festival over the weekend, which featured appearances from a blue-chip roster of hip-hop talent including Young Jeezy, Rick Ross, Fabolous and Bun B. Jay-Z and Eminem also treated concertgoers to surprise performances.
Light Dreams & Nightmares Tour supporting act Clipse have been making noise themselves with the announcement of Pusha T’s upcoming solo mixtape, The Fear of God, slated for a September 14 release. Push has also been building buzz as rumors abound that the MC has joined Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music family, a move that longtime collaborator Pharrell has said he supports.
