Hip-hop prepares to see the long-speculated reunion from the Living Legends—Murs , Luckyiam, Eligh, The Grouch, Sunspot Jonz, Bicasso, Scarub, and Aesop—as they gather for their 10th annual Holiday season tour.
In a conversation with HipHopDx, the rap icons shared a common enthusiasm regarding their upcoming get-together. “It had been a while since the Legends got together and Grouch got us to do a reunion tour,” mentioned Sunspot, “I'm always down to with my brothers and the time seemed right so I agreed to rock, and the rest will be history.”
“As far as I know, this was The Grouch's idea,” relayed Luckyiam. “It's the perfect time to do it. 2016 has been such a trash year, minus the new A Tribe Called Quest album, and some love was needed in the world. I also suspect that Grouch's younger brother Brad Scoffern had a strong hand in the curation of this.”
Living Legends' How The Grouch Stole Christmas tour officially launches on November 30, beginning with a show in Las Vegas, moving down the coastline until its stop at Colorado before its last show in Los Angeles on December 14.
Rallying alongside the Legends are a several other icons, such as MC Evidence from Dilated Peoples, as well as the rap group Grand Tapestry and DJ Fresh making appearances on select dates.
Apart from this, the group was asked if the tour would spark the beginnings of a new album, to which Sunspot responded, “Yes. Like I said, Voltron always needs its pieces. We are the defenders of underground Hip Hop and when we come together, worlds bond with the power of the electricity of the sun.”
“It's surreal,” adds Lucky, “The last time we all traveled together was 2007, so this is about to be a very interesting experience. I can't wait to reconnect with the fans and assist them with reliving what a lot of people regard as a very special moment of life. Legends, baby.”
