Ying Yang Twins Embark On Nat'l Tour
The 25-city tour is set to kick off in their hometown of Atlanta today (January 11) at the Fever and will wrap up on February 24 in Washington, D.C. The ATLiens will be performing their entire collection of hits including "Salt Shaker," "Wait (The Whisper Song)" as well as cuts from their fifth and latest release, Chemically Imbalanced, which was released in November of last year.
The album features guest appearances from Wyclef Jean and production by long time collaborator Mr. Collipark and Jerry "Wonda" Duplessis. The tour will also see the duo paired with group member D-Roc's group, Da Musicianz, which is composed of his younger siblings.
"We have been in the business for almost a decade and we really wanted to go to where our fans are," said D Roc. "This tour allows us to do just that and the added bonus is I get to bring along my little brothers [Da Musicianz] so they can grow their fan base too."
The group's previous album, U.S.A. United State of Atlanta, went platinum and garnered the pair a Grammy nod for "Wait (The Whisper Song)," which peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs chart.
