GloRilla takes her brand of Memphis, Tennessee rap on the road next year when she embarks on the Anyways, Life’s Great… Tour.
Big Glo’s first headlining tour will support her latest EP of the same name, kicking off January 27th in Charlotte, North Carolina. The tour will make stops in Houston, Chicago, Atlanta, Las Vegas, New York City and more before closing things out in Washington DC on February 25th.
GloRilla took to Instagram to share the news. “SO EXCITED!! Going on my VERY FIRST TOUR!!! Get the presale code when you join my Discord [two guerrilla emojis]”, she captioned a flyer for the tour. “Presale starts 11/17 at 10am local time. Public on sale Friday November 18th at 10am Local. BIG GLO & GANG EM COMING TO YOUR TOWN!”
A date has been saved for a show in Memphis, Tennesee, but nothing is set in stone yet. That “Tomorrow 2” the rapper has already been on the road promoting his music, but the official tour begins on January 27. Tickets are now available here.
The news about the tour arrives after GloRilla received his first Grammy nomination for Best Rap Performance to the hit single “FNF (Let’s Go)” on Tuesday (November 15). The Collective Music Group rapper hopped on Twitter to celebrate the news.
“The same song they clowned me and my friends saying we were Ugly & Dusty just got nominated for a Grammy,” she wrote on Twitter. “WHEN GOD IS ON YOUR SIDE YOU CANNOT FAIL.”
GloRilla’s popularity rose even higher after Nas called her out The King’s Disease III closing bonus track “Til My Last Breath”, where he raps: “I put pressure, I see why she pressed (Why she pressed)/ When she was with me, she GloRilla, FNF (FNF)/ NAS, I’m steppin’ ’til my last breath (My last breath, yeah).”
TMZ caught up with the Memphis native soon after The King’s Disease III dropped on Friday (November 11), and the young rapper was thrilled by Nas’ shoutout.
“I love it so much, Nas is really a great legend,” Glo said. “It’s super big. Like I’ve never been in a million years.”
As they celebrate each other, so do Nas and GloRilla amid a tense sales race in the first week. The CMG sign dropped his debut EP Anyway, life is great… on the same day as Nas’ album, and she’s found herself in an unlikely position for an up-and-coming rapper.
Hits daily double has predicted that Nas’ release will move around 27,500 in its first week, while GloRilla’s debut is expected to move around 28,000, meaning both artists will compete for the No. 10 spot on the Billboard 200.
