Taking a cue from Atmosphere's quick-selling second annual Welcome to Minnesota tour, onetime Atmosphere tourmate Prof announced today that he will head out on a mostly regional tour next month, hitting four Minnesota stops along the way. Given Prof's wild success over the past year (he easily sold out his first headlining gig at First Avenue's Mainroom
in September), it's no surprise that he's ready to make a go of it alone.
As the tour's name suggests, it will be the first time he's headlined a run of dates since releasing his new album, King Gampo
. For those who haven't picked up a copy of the album, it's currently being offered as a free download on his Bandcamp page
and features contributions from Brother Ali, Ant of Atmosphere, and MTV's Riff Raff.
