Yes that’s right lovers of rap, hip-hop, pop, rock, hell just music in general, valedictorian Mr Kanye West brings the Glow In The Dark Tour to New Zealand this December!

Arguably the most important creative force in hip-hop music today, Kanye is in a class of his own. Building the future of hip-hop as he digs back in time with his unique ear for samples, connecting the past with the present in a brand new way.

Enrolling for world domination in 2004 - no matter where you lived, if you owned a radio, a TV, a computer or a were simply taking a walk to the canteen, Kanye West broke into your music consciousness with his first album The College Dropout.

Kanye’s follow-up album of 2005, Late Registration reaffirmed him as the man at the top of his class. Featuring singles of distinction Diamonds From Sierra Leone & Gold Digger, the album’s a must for any music student, full or part time.

Now with his third release Graduation Kanye has once again been voted class captain showing the rest how it should be done. Leading the charge with Stronger & Good Life, Graduation is another critical & commercial touchstone. Kanye West is the man with the Midas touch!

Classmate to Kanye will be special guest Nas.

Coming to the fore with his now classic 1994 debut album Illmatic, the native New Yorker endeared hip-hop purists and critics alike, earning him a reputation as the teacher of hip-hop. Following multiple album releases and reaching sales over 12 million, Nas’ career came to a turning point in 2005 in a surprising, public reconciliation with Jay-Z, a long-time rival for rap’s East Coast throne.

The move resulted a Def Jam deal, and the release of Hip-Hop Is Dead (2007), once more proving his legendary sharp mic skills. Nas stands tall as statesman, mentor, and the “conscience” of hip-hop.

Kicking off the night’s proceedings will be New Zealand’s own hip-hop A-Grade student, Scribe.

Scribe’s debut album of distinction The Crusader, brought phenomenal critical and credible success on both sides of the Tasman. Boasting a platinum debut, Scribe regrouped at his Christchurch home, working on the 2007 sophomore release Rhyme Book. The album debuted top 10 in the ARIA album chart.

Don’t miss the graduation night of 2008, The Glow In The Dark Tour.
