Australia gets yet another mammoth hip hop bill.

More Fashawn More Fashawn

Two of the most formidable names in the world of modern underground hip hop are on their way to Australia on a massive double bill that will keep Australian hip hop fans pinching themselves after the huge number of incredible bills that have hit Australian shores over the past couple of months. For many years Exile has been a big name in the game, at first unleashing albums with Emanon, then solo records, albums with Blu and more recently nothcing up production credits with the likes of G Unit, Jurassic 5, Aloe Blacc, Pharoahe Monch and heaps more. While Ex has been in the game for over 15 years, his touring companion Fashawn is just an up and comer, but what a talent! His debut record Boys Meets World has been hailed as a masterful piece of work, he's toured with the best in the game since its release and Australia are going to go bananas for him, believe it.

These two guns play the following dates:

Thursday 21 June – Civic Underground, Sydney
Friday 22 June – The Leederville Hotel, Perth
Saturday 23 June – The Espy, Melbourne
Sunday 24 June – Coniston Lane, Brisbane
