EarthGang’s long-awaited sophomore effort Ghetto Gods seems to be drawing near, as the Atlanta duo just dropped another new track off the project titled “Amen” featuring Musiq Soulchild. They also announced a massive world tour.
“‘Amen’ is jammin! It’s honest, and the world needs a little more honesty,” EarthGang said of the track in a press release. “It shows our versatility as artists and producers. There was some initial uncertainty about putting the song out amongst the team. Even Musiq said ‘I can’t say get down on your knees for me.’ Lol. Then we explained that it’s about showing someone you’re really in their corner. It’s a beautiful song about expressing love in all its many forms.”
EarthGang also recently sat down with Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1 to discuss the record and said it was somewhat inspired by UGK’s classic “Int’l Players Anthem” with OutKast.
“We watched the ‘Int’l Player’s Anthem’ video before we started making this beat. Shoutout OutKast, UGK…it’s a total vibe, a total love for music and the energy,” the pair recalled to Zane Lowe.
“Amen” follows the release of the singles “American Horror Story” and “All Eyes on Me.” Ghetto Gods is finally set to drop on Friday, Feb. 25 after it was pushed back from its Jan. 28 release date.
The Dreamville signees’ newly announced Biodeghettable Tour will get into gear on April 20, following a March 4 performance at the Florida’s Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival, with supporting act Mike Dimes. The run——which crosses North America through June 23—will also be done in collaboration with Pigeons & Planes, which will search each city on the tour to find an additional local act to be that show’s opener. The program was created with P&P to spotlight compelling new talent and aid in uplifting local artistic communities.
Spotify presale tickets for the Biodeghettable Tour go live on Wednesday and general ticket sales begin Feb. 25. A European leg starts in Milan, Italy on Nov. 24 and continues through Dec. 23 in Hamburg, Germany
