The shows will be preceded by a short run in Europe, with dates scheduled in Berlin, Amsterdam, Brussels and Paris. Special guests on the run include Lord Apex, and Binker and Moses.

Gibbs’ forthcoming fifth solo studio album, ‘Soul Sold Separately’, is on its way but is yet to receive a release date.
In September Gibbs appeared to take a shot at Kendrick Lamar on a freestyle called ‘Vice Lord Poetry’.
Rapping over the beat for Drake‘s ‘Champagne Poetry’, Gibbs spits: “The earth ain’t big enough for both of us, you gotta get done/ They say they smokin’ top fives, but you ain’t burnt up the one.”
He adds: “Fuck n***as talking ’bout?/ Like every time I hit the booth I don’t leave that bitch with a body count.”
The bars seem to address some lines that Lamar said on his cousin Baby Keem’s recent single, ‘Family Ties’, which arrived August.
Lamar rapped: “The Elohim, the rebirth/ Before you get to the Father, you gotta holla at me first, bitch/ Smokin’ on top fives/ Muthafuck that album, fuck that single/ Burn that hard drive (Burn that shit).”
