There have been thoughts of doing a hologram tour for stars that have left us too soon, however, Chief Keef is utilizing technology to touch all parts of the world due to being unable to touch certain areas legally. Beginning at the tail end of August, Sosa will embark on the Chief Keef and Icons of American Music Tour.
Billboard reports the concert experience will be 90-minutes long and will kick off in London on August 31, return to the states by taking Holo-Keef to his hometown of Chicago and making its way across the country. The “Faneto” creator is currently unable to travel to London.
“Police and the mayor wanted to stop my hologram show in Chicago. Fuck Rahm Emanuel, I’m bringing it anyway. First up, London,” Chief Keef said to Billboard.
The tour is led by Aiki David, the head of Chief Keef’s label and states that the tour will infuse influences to Sosa’s career ranging from the likes of Jackie Wilson who were introduced to the rapper by his grandmother and rappers that many are impacted by like Tupac and The Notorious B.I.G.
Chief Keef will have from an assortment of street classics to pull from for his tour and will likely also chime in a couple bangers from his recently released Ottopsy EP and Mansion Musick album.
This will not be the first time Chief Keef has utilized a hologram. Back in 2015, he was going to appear in Hammond, Indiana, a neighbor to his hometown, but it was quickly shut down.
