Contrary to published reports, rapper Bubba Sparxxx
will not be joining the "White Boyz Can’t Rap" tour.
Sparxxx, who is preparing his sophomore set,
Deliverance, will be hitting the road to promote the release with dates
in conjunction with MTV.
"People have been asking me ‘where have
you been and what took you so long?’ In this day and age, people are putting
out an album every year. That not something I’m going to do," Sparxxx told
Sparxxx hopes to lose the comparisons made between
himself and rapper Eminem with this release, saying that the only thing the
two have in common is their skin color.
"Anybody with common sense know that the
similarities between me and Eminem begin and end with the simple fact that we
are white," Sparxxx said. "I mean we don’t look alike, we don’t sound
alike, we come from different parts of the country. We got different perspectives
on what we think hip-hop should be. I have tremendous amount of respect for
Em, but it just got kinda tired."
In addition to the MTV dates, Bubba is hosting
local "Bubba-Q’s" with local radio stations across the country.
The correct dates to catch Bubba live are as
27-Jul in New York @ BB Kings
28-Jul in DC @ 9:30 Club
29-Jul in Philly @ Trocadero
30-Jul in Boston @ Roxy
