Electro-rapper Sam Adams — who made headlines last year over for controversy over sales of his debut EP, Boston’s Boy — is gearing up to hit the road for a national college tour.
The tour will kick off later this month in York, Pennsylvania on the 25th and continue until May, stopping in Kansas City, Rochester, Vermont, Pittsburgh, and Toronto on its final stop on May 2.
It will be a combination of private and public performances, along with a few club dates and festivals. This past weekend, Adams performed at the Snowball Music Festival in Vail Valley, Colorado along with Pretty Lights, Bassnectar and The Flaming Lips.
After the success of Sammy’s performance at last year’s Bamboozle in East Rutherford, NJ, the rapper has been asked back again this year. According to his camp, over 8,000 fans were singing along, word for word, to his single “Driving Me Crazy” (see here).
Since Boston’s Boy topp the iTunes Hip-Hop chart, Sam Adams has spent the past year touring the country multiple times and been in the studio working feverishly on new material. The remix, “I Hate College”, which helped catapult Adams into the spotlight as an independent artist, currently has over 5 million views on YouTube.
He’s currently recording the EP’s follow-up, and plans to drop it later this year.
