3rd STUDIO ALBUM DEPART FROM ME OUT JULY 7th

FREE I NEVER KNEW YOU EP OUT NOW

Fresh off the releases of his new video and EP for I Never Knew You, Cage is announcing the first US tour in support of his upcoming full-length LP Depart From Me (out July 7th on Definitive Jux). The Brooklyn-based rapper will be delivering his new material (kicking off July 2nd in Brooklyn, NY) with partners in crime, guitarist (and producer of nine tracks on the record) F. Sean and DJ Chauncey of XO Skeletons. The live show is, as described by Charles Aaron of SPIN Magazine; “not really either hip-hop or rock…instead it felt like an artist getting more deeply comfortable in his own skin, and not just scratching the surface.”
