Wiz Khalifa is about to extend his influence once again when he hits the road this summer. On Saturday — the day cannabis connoisseurs more affectionately refer to as 4/20 — Khalifa announced the lineup and dates for his upcoming Under the Influence of Music Tour, and it looks to be a good one.
A$AP Rocky, B.o.B., Trinidad James, Joey Bada$$, Pro Era, Smoke DZA, and Taylor Gang's Berner and Chevy Woods will join Wiz on the road starting July 17 in San Francisco, California. Last year's Under the Influence of Music tour united Khalifa, Mac Miller, Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q and Chevy Woods for a two-month run. This summer looks to be just as exciting.

"UNDER THE INFLUENCE," Rocky tweeted in reaction to the announcement. (Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning April 27 at Livenation.com and ticketmaster.com)
Joey hit Instagram, posting an image of the tour flyer with captioned by the word: "OFFICIAL."
It was a busy 4/20 for Wiz, who along with his longtime friend and collaborator Curren$y, released Live in Concert six-song EP for sale on iTunes. The soulful and musically rich project was supposed to be released last August, but was delayed as the duo worked to clear the song's samples.
Many of the tracks like the EP-opening "Cabana" and the jazzy "Revenge and Cake" feature long musical breaks, creating a relaxing vibe atypical of most of today's hip-hop releases. "When me and [Wiz] work, there is never a structure to it," Curren$y told "RapFix Live" of the project last year. "So, some stuff might be 11 minutes; some songs might be 30 seconds. But in that 30 seconds, you would've got like two hours' worth of game."
