Baauer and Danny Brown are joining forces for the “Worst Of Both Worlds” tour this April, just like Jay-Z and R Kelly’s legendary “Best Of Both Worlds” trek, except with more bass and less pepper spray. Fader spilled the beans this morning, check out the tour dates (culminating with Coachella slots for both) and rock with these gents when they roll through.
