Twista is set to embark on the ‘Stimulus Tour’, which will find T in various cities across the U.S. to reach out to the youth and perform affordable concerts at community centers around the country. Also set to join him are Playaz Circle, Durrough and Moulange. Pretty dope and noble of Cav if you ask me. A Chicago date will be added, but hasn’t been secured at this time.
October 20, 2009 (Chicago, IL)- Chicago’s tongue twisting emcee, Twista, is hitting the road on what he calls the Stimulus Tour to help reach out to the youth in different cities. The stimulus tour will hit major US cities where Twista will be joined by Durrough, Playaz Circle, and Moulange for a series of affordable concerts and talks at youth centers.
“The economy isn’t the only thing hurting right now,” comments Twista. “The kids are going through some things right now, too, and so we need to get out there and talk to them so we can help them out. That’s what the point of the Stimulus tour is right now.”
In each city, Twista will visit youth centers and talk to the children about making wise lifestyle decisions and focus on the importance of education as a way to achieving success. “These kids just need someone to really sit down with them and explain to them how things really are,” says Twista. “And there’s no reason that person shouldn’t be me so I’m going to make sure I can do that for all the kids I possibly can.”
Children at the youth center will also be given complimentary tickets to the show in their city.
