(AllHipHop News) Brooklyn native and one-third of Hip-Hop group Company Flow, El-P, has announced tour dates in support of the release of his upcoming fifth solo studio album, Cancer4Cure.

The 21-date tour is being presented by Karmaloop and will feature such openers as Killer Mike, Mr. MFN eXquire, and Despot.

In addition to the tour announcement, El-P also released a new album track for fans to preview titled "Tougher Colder Killer", which premiered on Pitchforkand features tourmates Killer Mike (for whom he just produced an entire album) and Despot.

"Tougher Colder Killer" finds El penning an apology to the mother of a man he killed on the battlefield, and descends into a savage back-and-forth between himself and his fellow MCs.

El-P's upcoming album, Cancer4Cure, is set for release on May 22 through Fat Possum Records. This is the Brooklyn native's first album with the label, as his past solo projects were released through Definitive Juxx.
