Chuckie Campbell Announces New Tour, Album


We last featured Chuckie Campbell back in 2013, when the rapper from Buffalo, NY released an impressive album in More Die of Heartbreak, led by the excellent track “Speak” and its string-based melody, with a stunning incorporation of somber crying strings and organ bursts over Campbell’s fluid delivery. As I noted at the time, it was one of the most touching hip-hop beats of that year. So, I was excited when I heard an update from the Chuckie Campbell camp, regarding an upcoming tour.

Already kicked off on July 30th in Windsor, VT, Campbell is touring with The Phaction on a 24-city promotional tour for their new album Taking Back Tomorrow. Per the press release, the upcoming album will “feature some of today’s most groundbreaking voices, including Iesha Green (sharing songwriting credits with Rihanna) and Heidi Feek (daughter of country music stars, Joey and Rory Feek), while matching them with legendary hip hop names, such as Ras Kass (who Pitchfork called one of the greatest rappers of all time) and Talib Kweli (independent hip hop pioneer and former Rawkus Records emcee and co-creator of the famed hip hop super duo Black Star), among many others.”
