Cage hates the road, loves cupcakes


Former Agent Orange-turned-Definitive Jux star Cage is heading on the road for a 22-city tour through the eastern United States, including dates in the East, Midwest and South. His touring companions? First there’s Yak Ballz, an emcee best known for associations with Bobbito (via Fondle ‘Em) and Def Jux fam (Definitive Jux Presents II), and who dropped his second album Scifentology last year. Slow Suicide Stimulus, the New Jersey rap quartet featuring former Artifacts rapper Tame One and Dusted Dons, will be promoting last year’s self-titled debut.

The concerts, lovingly titled the “I Hate It” tour, will provide audiences with new material from Cage’s upcoming album Depart from Me. It will also introduce CupCake, a crew of ladies who are releasing a DVD called, coincidentally, I Hate It. Judging from a trailer posted on CupCake’s MySpace page (and the softcore website, where they pose as models), they’re a cross between Suicide Girls and Jackass, and display lots of titties, tattoos and stupid pranks. Cage’s skatepunk and knucklehead fans will love them.
