Hopsin

The world’s largest annual touring sneaker hip-hop lifestyle exhibition, Sneaker Pimps, is set to return in August for their annual tour. But, this year is special, because its celebrating 10 years since it’s initial launch.

The Sneaker Pimps tour was founded in Sydney, Australia by sneakerhead Peter Fahey. During its run, it’s visited more than 60 cities worldwide, and featured the works of artists such as Futura, Dave White, Stash, Mister Cartoon and Shepard Fairey, as well as live skate demos with international pro teams such as Ice Cream, Nike SB, Zoo York and more.

The 2012 tour will kick off on August 10th at Los Angeles’ Vanguard venue, with headlining performances by Hopsin and Iggy Azalea, as well as Tyga protege Honey Cocaine, Starting Six, Clyde Carson, and DJ Skee.

Celebrity jeweler Ben Baller will serve as the evening’s host, alongside Dave Jeff, while Methamphibian and Chris Winn will perform a live art installation.

The Sneaker Pimps tour will then run through October 6th, making stops in Miami, Atlanta, Chicago, and D.C. Headliners for the other cities’ dates have yet to be announced.
