The group, made up of Kool Keith, Ced Gee and TR Love are gracing Europe with their presence for their first tour in 25 years, celebrating the anniversary of "Critical Beatdown", the groups debut studio album. Critics have proclaimed the 1988 released "Critical Beatdown" as a classic album of hip hop's "golden age", having influenced artists such as Public Enemy, more so gangsta rap in general, and several generations of underground hip hop artists, even laying the foundation for producers like Dilla and Madlib with their innovative sampling techniques. "Critical Beatdown" was unmatched in originality and ferocity, deserving nothing less than a world widely celebrated anniversary.

Lead by Kool Keith, arguably one of Hip Hop's most interesting characters, The Ultramagnetic MC's are known to have made some of the best Hip Hop of all time.

Don't believe it? Ask De La Soul, The Prodigy, Nas and many more of your favorite artists!

The Ultramagnetic MC's have come back together to give Hip Hop Fans all across the globe what they are missing, a true authentic hip-hop show! This tour is not only for the fans they made 25 years ago but also serves as an introduction to those of a younger generation who may have never heard of them, showing them where their favorite rappers got their style from!

These three seasoned, but never outdated MCs promise to shake the building down! If you want to be part of Hip Hop History, do not miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to see The Ultramagnetic MC's on "The Critical Beatdown Tour" at one of their stops in Belgium, France, the UK, Ireland, or the Netherlands.
