Some of the best names in hip-hop at the moment are on this appropriately named tour, who might as well be riding around in a tour bus made of kush, a la Cheech and Chong. It’s an oddly balanced package: Curren$y’s Jet Life crew (Smoke Dza and Fiend) provides a wide range of vocal timbres — Fiend’s baritone mixed with Curren$y’s higher, syrupy flow on the fabulous “Blood, Sweat & Gears” from this years “Covert Coup” ep; Big K.R.I.T.’s got the Southern bounce production aesthetic down, and his drawl creates front-porch rap sermons; and Method Man, who is surely going to be wheeling around an iron lung one day, is still the reigning champ of non-goofy weed rap (even though he can drop some funny lines like anyone’s business). You can’t really go wrong with this one.
