Hometown Rapper Added to Bone Thugs N Harmony Tour

Hometown Rap artist Armagideon has been added to the Free Love- Stop The Violence Back To School Tour starring Bone Thugs n Harmony Saturday September 3, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin @ US Cellular Arena Showtime is 7:30 pm.

The Free Love- Stop The Violence Back To School Tour is a three day tour bringing together the communities of Grand Rapids, Michigan, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and Peoria, Illinois to start the new school year off with a positive event including contemporary urban music, spoken word poetry and inspirational speakers. The aim of the concert is to bring the communities and the youth together to promote peace in the streets.

Armagideon, local underground emcee, filmmaker, and activist, began his musical journey on his front porch writing rhymes and break dancing at the tender age of twelve. The 25-year-old emcee has opened for Erykah Badu, Black Eyed Peas, Whodini, KRS One, Dead Prez and Common Sense. The filmmaker has created short ethnographic documentaries in Cuba, Peru and Jamaica. In addition, he has directed and produced a documentary honoring the Milwaukee hip hop scene. The activist has organized several initiatives in Milwaukee's inner city along with voter registration efforts in St. Louis.

Now Armagideon has been given chance at a true taste of the hip hop industry as he prepares to go on tour with his longtime favorite rap group, Bone Thugs N Harmony. In a recent article Armagideon was asked about his desire for main stream crossover success and he replied. "Paid or not, if you catch me performing or recording it's for the love. I make music for my people's stories to be told, not fame or mainstream crossover appeal. If an artist takes his passion for hip-hop serious he will grasp the business aspect as well as the creative process. Balancing the two is the gift and curse of a serious underground emcee."

"Amagideon pushes messages of empowerment, endurance and radical change."
