Styles P continues to bid farewell to the rap game with the announcement of his upcoming Respect My Legacy Tour, which will mark his final series of concerts as a soloist.
Announced on Friday (Oct. 20), the Respect My Legacy Tour will include 11 dates in the U.S., with stops in New York City, Philadelphia, Boston, Los Angeles, Houston, and more. The Yonkers rep will be joined by supporting acts Smoke DZA, Brady Watt’s Bass & Bars collective, and band Ramakhandra on the tour, which begins with a celebratory show on Nov. 27 at Irving Plaza in New York City, the day before Style’s 49th birthday.
The tour will then hit four cities across the east coast during December before breaking for the holidays. The LOX member and company will then resume the tour in 2024, with five remaining dates spread January and early February.
The veteran lyricist took to social media to share the news of his upcoming trek, voicing his excitement of performing with a live band while teasing surprises attendees can look forward to during the tour. “We taking the show on the road!!!!” Styles wrote on Friday (Oct. 20). “Happy to announce the first leg of my national tour in celebration of my last solo project(dropping soon)!!! If you’ve never heard me perform with a live band heres your chance.”
He continued, adding, “I got my lil bro @smokedza and @ramakhandra on the bill and a few other surprises for y’all. Ticket links in my bio and on Mrdavidstyles.com. Hit @doubt_x_belief for support openings, afterparties and sponsorships. See y’all soon!!!! Love is Love.”
Styles P’s tour announcement follows his successful Respect My Legacy concert in Toronto earlier this month, which attracted a sold-out crowd for what was the emcee’s first solo show in the city. The rapper announced his plans to end his solo career earlier last year, voicing his fatigue with the grind that comes with being an artist and his desire to pursue endeavors outside of Hip-Hop.
“I believe I have run myself down a tad bit over the past few years. Being a super hard working emcee and a health advocate,” the Gangster and a Gentleman creator expressed at the time.
“For one, I’m not that great at multi-tasking. It’s my drive that keeps me going, and that slack falls back on my family, business partners, and co-workers. I thought about it harder and came to the conclusion that I need to walk away from my solo career period (I think I gave y’all enough).”
In January 2023, Styles P released Penultimate: A Calm Wolf Is Still A Wolf, his 15th solo studio album.
