Madchild hits the road with Dizzy Wright on Aug. 29 for 24-city tour; drops “Brainstorm” video
Vancouver’s own Madchild of Swollen Members is joining forces with Las Vegas rapper Dizzy Wright for a 24-city Canadian tour.
The Head in the Clouds Tour kicks off on Aug. 29 in Victoria, B.C., and finishes on the East Coast roughly a month later with a show in Moncton, NB. You can find the full tour listing below.
To celebrate the launch of the tour, Madchild released a new video for “Brainstorm” off his latest project and sixth solo studio album, Demons.
Roughly a month before that, Madchild had released visuals for a really dope track called “Myself,” which was originally expected to appear on Demons, but wasn’t on the final track listing for whatever reason. Instead, the Rob the Viking-produced banger was released separately to digital outlets on July 5 including Apple Music.
Madchild is a 5-Time JUNO Award-winning hip-hop artist. In 2012, he released his debut solo album, Dope Sick which debuted at #3 spot on the Canadian Billboard Top 200. The album went on to be nominated for a JUNO in the Recording of the Year category, and also earned Sirius XFM and Canadian Independent Music Award nominations.
Dope Sick certified Gold in Canada back in April. After the milestone had been reached, Madchild shared a message with his fans on social media:
“What a crazy week! I just got the call today, my first album DOPE SICK is now certified Gold in Canada. I want to first thank all of You for making this happen. You’re support is everything to me. I’d also like to thank, my team and everyone that participated in making the record. This is a huge deal to me. This Gold record is from actual albums sold… not an easy accomplishment these days and I couldn’t be more grateful!!!”
Meanwhile, Dizzy Wright is gearing up to join the tour in support of his recently released album, Nobody Cares, Work Harder, which features joints with Tech N9ne and Futuristic. On July 8, he released “HUSH” with Corey Ellis, along with the “HUSH (Remix).”
Dizzy Wright has been blazing up the scene since winning the Sheikh Music Rip the Mic competition, which led to an appearance on legendary BET program 106 & Park. He then grabbed the attention of Dame Ritter who signed the promising talent to Hopsin’s Funk Volume crew, and released his debut album, SmokeOut Conversations. After touring the country relentlessly for two years, Dizzy dropped his now classic mixtape, The Golden Age in 2013, which caught the attention of XXL Magazine who named him a member of their “Freshman Class” alongside Travi$ Scott, Logic, Action Bronson, and Chief Keef.
