(AllHipHop News) A$SP Rocky is starting the new year right with a brand new tour.
This time, the all-star lineup includes Playboi Carti, Ski Mask The Slump God, Comethazine.
The news was first shared on A$AP Mob’s Twitter, with a minute-long clip setting the scene for the Injured Generation Tour announcement.
The video ends with a link to a GoFundMe benefitting a teenager named Samir, who was seriously injured while taking a train home from an A$AP Rocky show.
The rap star is using his platform to encourage donations to Samir.
"While waiting for the train Samir took a look to see if there was any signs of the train, when he unexpectantly lost his balance to the point he fell over and hit his head on the rail resulting in him being knocked unconsciousness," the GoFundMe page reads. "Luckily enough a bystander called the authorities to slow the train down due to an individual being on the tracks. The train slowed down but unfortunately it did not come to a complete stop which resulted in him being ran over by the first train car. Thanks to the fast responding EMTs, caring witnesses, and the staff at Harlem Hospital, Samir is alive and making progress. He has a long journey ahead of him since both of his legs were bilaterally amputated."
