PR: Yo Gotti Announces Nationwide Road to Riches Tour

Memphis, TN -- March 19, 2012 -- In May 2012, Memphis rap mogul Yo Gotti will set off on his national Road To Riches Tour, which is already confirmed in nearly 30 cities, with more to be announced.
Yo Gotti will kick off the tour on May 3 in Atlanta, followed by a special appearance with Pitbull at the historic Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis on May 5.
Also on the tour is Zed Zilla, who is the first signee to Yo Gotti's CMG imprint. The young Memphis rapper has been consistently selling out shows since his Rent's Due mixtape dropped in October 2011, and his follow up project, Rent's Due: Late Notice hosted by DJ Drama, is slated for release prior to the tour.
In recent months, Yo Gotti's ardent fan base has grown by leaps and bounds, particularly online, with over 1.3 million followers on Facebook and nearly 400,000 on Twitter, growing rapidly. Without question, interacting with his loyal fans is foremost on Gotti's agenda.
Last week, Yo Gotti found the perfect way to bring the internet and streets together, as he ventured to SxSW 2012 in Austin, Texas to headline the 'Bout That Life show, sponsored by Dirty Glove Bastard, Live Mixtapes, 8732 Clothing and MTV2 Sucker Free. Gotti also surprised fans with several unannounced appearances, including an impromptu performance at the BET stage with Machine Gun Kelly, and another with Meek Mill at The Warner Sound stage.
On his upcoming tour, Gotti promises more personal outreach with his fans. Music lovers will be able to see him in world-renowned venues like New York's SOB's, Toad's Place in Connecticut, Key Club in Los Angeles, and House of Blues in Ohio, New Orleans and Dallas.
"For Road To Riches, we wanted to do venues in more intimate settings, more up close and personal with the fans," Yo Gotti explains. "We'll be bringing out guests throughout, so people can expect lots of surprises. I don't measure my success by the internet or by charts, I measure it by how I see people reacting in real life."
There are truly no days off with Yo Gotti, as he has spent every waking hour in the new year filming videos for songs like "Colors" and "I Got That Sack" from his acclaimed January 10 mixtape; and recording songs for his highly anticipated CM7 mixtape.
"We have a lot of big records already, some good features," says Yo Gotti. "I'm working on the mixtape and a new album at the same time. The sound is just getting bigger and bigger as far as the production and quality."
With the initial announcement of the Road To Riches Tour dates on Yo Gotti's official website YoGottiMusic.com, some fans have already expressed dismay at not seeing their city on the itinerary.
"I want to hit every city for the fans, of course," he assures, "but you have to start somewhere and you have to end somewhere. But who knows? We may do a second leg if circumstances allow."

All of a sudden this guy Shottie appears on the scene with a full length album called Delorean and a crispy new music video for his properly titled record "Legendary Shit" a hypnotic and soulfoul head nodder that reflects on his past as a juvenile. The video directed by Garcia depicts Shottie as youngster in Miami performing and rapping in the park and later as a young man breaking into his neighbors house to steal food. Not so surprisingly the house he breaks into is actually present day Shottie's. If you watch closely this video does a nice job accompanying the music produced by Brooklyn based TeV95.
