Pusha T and Malice in the house that indie-rock built? Oh, fuck yes. Frankly, we've never fully understood why hip-hop touring has failed to keep pace with its commercial unit-shifting power: even if you factor in institutional racism, performer unreliability, and ridiculous ticket prices, you still don't get record-of-the-year candle-men like T.I. at 2000-capacity room like Avalon, right? In rock n roll, bigger acts play bigger venues -- ipso facto, bands that play the same room share roughly the same popularity. Which doesn't hold up (or does it?) when you look at Lupe Fiasco, the last name brand to play the Middle East, and Clipse, who made by many people's estimates the best hip-hop album of the year and maybe the best album of the year, period.

In any case, we can not wait for this shit. We'll be there with duncecaps and kazoos.

WATCH: Clipse, "Wamp Wamp (What It Do)"
