After last minute visa issues forced the delay of his debut solo headline tour in late 2015, Canadian rap veteran Madchild has delighted fans today, announcing the rescheduled dates for April/May.
Off the back of his new album Silver Tongue Devil, the Canadian rapper will be hitting the nation’s capitals to showcase new music along with his well known crowd favourites.
Madchild’s new album Silver Tongue Devil boasts a slew of features including Ceekay Jones and Demrick who is better known for his project Serial Killers alongside Xzibit and B-Real of Cypress Hill.
Check out one of Madchild’s latest tracks featuring Demrick:
No stranger to Australian fans, Madchild hit our shores back in 2014 with his mainstay crew Swollen Members, playing to packed out crowds on the sold out tour.
Madchild hails from the golden era of hip-hop – having been inducted into the Rock Steady Crew with his band Swollen Members in 1996 alongside Dilated Peoples. It all attests to his powerful collaborations with industry heavyweights Jurassic 5, Talib Kweli, Nelly Furtardo and Insane Clown Posse to name a few. A career like this hints that fans can only expect the best when he hits our shores with classic tracks such as Prefontaine and The Jackel, the latter of which was shot in Sydney.
Supporting Madchild nationally will be Adelaide MC Mastacraft, who is debuting the single Elephant Man featuring Madchild. After gaining worldwide notoriety via global media outlets TMZ and World Star Hip Hop as the Australian promoter Xzibit threw a chair at, Mastacraft looks forward to bringing retribution and his own unique style to the stage.
