Isaiah Rashad is hitting the road.
On Monday (July 26), the Top Dawg Entertainment artist announced “Lil Sunny’s Awesome Vacation,” a new tour that’s all set to begin in September. He used an Instagram post to announce the trek.
In the caption for the post, which includes the poster for the tour, he wrote: “Tour. Want tickets early? Text me! 423 564 5774 #THIB.”
The tour will support The House Is Burning, a new Rashad album that marks his first since 2016’s The Sun’s Tirade. Ahead of the album release date, which is this Friday, he’s released three singles with varying sounds.
The first was “Lay Wit Ya,” a Duke Deuce-assisted song that samples Three 6 Mafia. He released that one in May, and out of all his recent drops, this particular one is the most anthemic. The next single was “Headshots (4r Da Locals),” a soulful track that sees Rashad unpack his demons. Then, there’s “Wat U Sed,” a breezy summertime anthem with features from Iamdoechii and Kal Banx.
With three standout singles at his back and about five years’ worth of experience to unpack, Rashad’s got a lot of momentum heading into his next album release, and he should bring that into his tour as well.
Speaking with Billboard this past May, Rashad, who had previously dealt with drug addiction, revealed that he had recorded this new album while he was sober. He noted that the experience initially challenged his confidence, but he got through it.
“At first it was hard, but once I had some sessions with Kenny Beats, he taught me some of the methods that he used with Keys and what he seen Young Thug do and how they get comfortable to say whatever’s on their mind,” he explained. “Then I worked with my nigga Kal Banx, and he’s on a good majority on the project — and my homie Henry that my manager put me on to. They gave me the space and time to practice that shit.”
