Young Dro Plots First Major Tour

Atlanta rapper

Young Dro will soon be shoulder-leaning around the country, as he plots his first

major tour in support of his Atlantic Records debut Best Thang Smokin’.

The colorful

rapper is set to hit the road this fall for a major U.S. tour with labelmate T.I.

The

arena trek will kick off Oct. 27 in Hampton, Va., and will stop in various major

markets, including Chicago, Detroit, Memphis, and St. Louis, with additional dates

to be added later. Fueled

by the success of his first single "Shoulder Lean," Young Dro has notched

over 1.5 million ringtone sales, and his latest single, "Rubberband Banks,"

sits atop national playlists as the No. 1 most added track last week.

Best Thang

Smokin’ topped Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and landed

at No. 3 on Billboard’s Top 200 albums chart, moving over 104,000 units

in its first week of release. Dro

and T.I. recently performed "Shoulder Lean" and "Rubberband Banks"

on Showtime at the Apollo for the show that will later this fall.
