El-P, Dizzee Rascal and Busdriver rock No Chiefs Allowed tour

As I reported several weeks ago (along with everybody else), today (actually tonight) marks the beginning of the El-P, Dizzee Rascal and Busdriver tour. Dubbed the No Chiefs Allowed tour, the month-long trek co-stars gutter music advocate Aaron LaCrate (Dizzee’s DJ), Mr. Dibbs (El’s DJ) and
multimedia artist/MC the Mighty Quin (El’s hypeman), and Mush producer/A&R dude Antimc (Bus’ DJ). But wait, there’s more! Dapper Chi-Town dudes Kidz in the Hall and snarky rapper Aesop Rock will appear as special guests on, uh, special dates.

As an added bonus, El-P is selling a tour-only item, Weareallgoingtoburninhellmegamixx2, a two-CD sequel to his 2003 mix compilation of odds and sods. He has also launched a blog, “Bastard’s Delight,” on okayplayer.com. Once there, you’ll find a stream of El’s remix for Kidz in the Hall’s “Driving Down the Block.” Check it out after peeping the tour dates below.
