The Smoker's Club Tour Kicks Off In Philly TonightBy Noisey Staff
The Smoker's Club Tour is kicking off in Philly today and traveling for the next month, painting most of North America a nice, deep green. The tour was founded a few years back by Smoke DZA, Shiest Bubz, Jonnyshipes, and Steve-O Brown. For the second installment, the trip features some real top shelf talent: DZA, Juicy J, Chevy Woods, Fat Trel, and Joey Bada$$ will be blowing spots from Tampa to the Great White North. You can find all the info you'd ever need right here.
We've got all the tour dates below, plus a sick mix by DJ Lee Bannon that features all the artists onboard.
