Back in the hot and sweaty summer of 2011, local rap crew ¡Mayday! set out on an 82-city blitz across the United States of America and Canada alongside the band's boss, Tech N9ne, and the rest of his Strange Music fam.
"It was fuckin' crazy. Absolute insanity," Bernz told Crossfade a few months ago. "We played a show every night, with one day off every 20 days. Just grinding every day."
But no doubt, Miami's ¡Mayday! homies ain't afraid to hustle even harder. And this March, they'll be hooking up again with Tech N9ne for his Hostile Takeover tour, an almost non-stop sked of 90 shows in 99 days.
Zigging and zagging across the country from NYC to L.A., ATL, and Vegas, ¡Mayday!'s Bernz, Wrekonize, Plex Luthor, Gianni Ca$h, Mr. L.T. Hopkins, and Nonymous will be riding the bus and storming the stage with Tech, Machine Gun Kelly, Krizz Kaliko, Prozak and Stevie Stone.
Like Tech says: "It's tour time again! But this time, I'm doing the longest tour ever done! ... We gon start this shit off right!"
