Ahead of the UK and Ireland tour, the rapper will head out on a second set of US tour dates that will kick off on September 3 in Philadelphia as part of the Made In America festival and will conclude on October 30 in Wallingford, Connecticut.

Pusha T released his fourth studio album ‘It’s Almost Dry’ in April. The album – which he dubs “rap album of the motherfucking year” – scored a glowing five-star review from NME.

The review said: “Pusha T has managed to elevate his art to new heights, signalling that the artist is nowhere close to being done. Despite being longer than ‘Daytona’, there is succinct preciseness to ‘It’s Almost Dry’ with Pusha’s lyricism, in particular, never left wanting.

“Alongside the outstanding production, it makes for an instant hip-hop classic.”
