Freshly Dipped Tour!!!

To ring in their 10th anniversary as an independent label and hip-hop collective, Hieroglyphics announced details for the second leg of their massive North American fashion and music expo that will span from mid-summer into fall. Twelve dates have been added to the 3-month long tour. The Freshly Dipped Tour celebrates Hiero Imperium's prolific past ten years as indie hip-hop trailblazers and looks ahead to their expansion into the fashion industry and their continuing role of bringing both classic and new West Coast hip-hop artists to the masses.

Combining elements of fashion and music, The Freshly Dipped Tour will feature Hiero Imperium's stable of artists as well as their brand-new lifestyle line ( Available at the shows will be a selection of Hiero Jeans denim and shirts as well a copies of Souls of Mischief emcee Opio's new album, Vulture's Wisdom, Volume One, and a limited edition Freshly Dipped Tour 7".

Tanya Morgan joins the ranks of legendary hip-hop collective The Hieroglyphics this summer as part of their Freshly Dipped Tour. Tanya Morgan members Donwill, Ilyas, and Von Pea, who put out the critically acclaimed Moonlighting in 2006 and who are promoting their EP The Bridge, are preparing to hit the road again to perform not only some of their past hits but also new tracks for the first time.

The Freshly Dipped Tour is a 45 date, three month-long expo of cutting edge music and fashion from the Hiero crew. Featuring fresh music from up and comers and classics from Hiero’s stable of artists, the tour will provide a welcoming environment for Tanya Morgan to once again bring their live show to the masses. The tour will also feature members of The Hieroglyphics, Souls of Mischief, Casual, Pep Love, and Domino, along with extended members Prince Ali, Musab, Knobody, and Blue Scholars.

Tanya Morgan’s debut full-length album, Moonlighting, built an underground buzz after receiving kudos from both critics and their peers. Moonlighting made ?uestlove’s list of Top 10 albums of 2006, received praise in XXL’s Chairman’s Choice and got a 3.5 mic rating from The Source.
