PURE HIP-HOP MASTERS JOIN FORCES ON
"THE FRESHLY DIPPED TOUR"
In celebration of its 10th anniversary as an independent label and hip-hop collective, Hiero Imperium (The Hieroglyphics) will embark on a North American tour that will span from mid-summer into fall, joining with Blue Scholars who have been lighting up the underground coming out of Seattle. Combining elements of fashion and music, "The Freshly Dipped Tour" is a nod to Hiero Imperium's prolific past ten years as indie hip-hop industry leaders as well as to the bright future of Hiero Imperium. The 3-month long tour, which runs from July through October, includes dates all across the US, as well as select dates in Canada.

"We are putting this tour together to thank our fans for their years of loyal support, expose them to our new projects including our brand-new lifestyle line, Hiero Jeans (www.hierojeans.com), and to celebrate the ways that hip-hop style has influenced the fashion world," explained Hiero Imperium CEO Tajai Massey.
Hiero Imperium will also debut a special, limited edition "Freshly Dipped Tour" 7” this summer. Available exclusively at the shows, the 7” will include a Hieroglyphics remix of a Blue Scholars track and a Blue Scholars remix of a Hiero track.
