We're not sure exactly what it is, but there's something about Travie McCoy's comical lyrical stylings that just draws us in. He had us at pancakes when the video for "Cupid's Chokehold" first came out in '06 -- and the Katy Perry cameo didn't hurt, either. (As everyone knows, they used to date).
If you missed the Gym Class Heroes frontman when he opened for Cobra Starship and 3OH!3 at Pompano Beach Amphitheatre this past June 8, you're in luck. The energetic vocalist / future billionaire has just announced he's joining Ke$ha as an opening act on Rihanna's Last Girl on Earth Tour, which stops in Miami at the American Airlines Arena on July 31. Here's hoping he does another after party like the shebang at Coco De Ville which followed that June 8 show.
Check out some Travie McCoy videos (including the infamous one with Katy Perry) after the jump. Mmmmm, pancakes.
