Just as the Trump campaigns heads into overdrive (fully melts down?) in the run-up to Election Day, embarking on what will probably be a whistle-stop tour of headline-grabbing gaffes and offensive statements, YG's "Fuck Donald Trump" campaign will also hit the road.
Just before releasing his second studio album Still Brazy in June, the Compton rapper scored a viral hit with the anti-Trump Nipsey Hussle collaboration "FDT (Fuck Donald Trump)."
On Tuesday, he announced a 52-city North American tour this fall with Canadian stops in Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver (full dates below) called the FDT Tour. Concert-goers will be able to register to vote at the merch booth (and registered voters will receive a discount on YG merchandise). A portion of those merch profits will be donated to families affected by police brutality. Select cities will also stage a pre-show panel about the upcoming American election.
So if you're keeping track, that's two "Fuck Donald Trump" songs, two videos, and a whole tour. We wouldn't have predicted YG as this election's most vital protest rapper (or at least since Bernie dropped out), but he's really taking this thing as far as it'll go.
