Right as the 10,000LB Hamburger Tour was kicking off this weekend, we found out that Rye Rye had to drop off the trek. But hip-hop don’t stop, so we are psyched to announce the addition of Theophilus London to A-Trak’s state-to-state calvacade of goodtimes (Treasure Fingers is still holding it down, along with all other previously announced special guests). If you’re not familiar with Theo’s particular brand of mic science, check this Fader profile, download his debut mixtape, and give a listen to his latest jam, a remix of The Very Best’s “Warm Heart Of Africa” featuring our boy Ezra Koenig.
Theo hops on the tour 7/11 in Houston – full lineup and ticket info after the jump! Also be sure to follow A-Trak, Treasure Fingers and Mr London on Twitter for the latest and greatest in room service mayhem AS IT HAPPENS. Read More
