Columbus rapper Envelope announced today that he will be celebrating the release of his new EP This Could Go Either Way by touring 8 Columbus Record Stores on October 15th. The stores are listed above.
These shows are free and all ages.
I’ve been calling it the “We Are Coming to You” tour.
This Could Go Either Way is produced by Jacoti Sommes and is being released on Envelope’s new label, Palais Du Pomeroi , a joint venture with Columbus Discount Records’s Adam Smith.
The recording process was really unique and will be explored in the future here on donewaiting.

If y’all remember Greenhouse vs. Radiohead, Blueprint vs. Funkadelic or how Print flipped the Who on Illogic’s “1,000 Whispers then you will be pretty stoked on Blueprint’s first video for his new EP Blueprint Who.
The video had Print and and his dj Rare Groove playing the role of rivals that keep bumping into each other at the local record stores, Used Kids, Magnolia and Lost Weekend.
It’s funny and silly.
(I make a brief cameo in a shot)
