    Tour Alert! And trust us, this is one for the ages and the annals of hip-hop history. It is a tour you do NOT want to miss.

    Birdman, Young Thug & Rich Homie Quan are teaming up for The Lifestyle Tour, which will kick off November 1 in Shreveport, Louisiana. If you live and love hip-hop music and culture, which we know you do, then this is the one show/tour of 2014 that you do NOT want to miss if you are lucky enough to live in one of the cities in which the tour is visiting.

    Taking its name from Rich Gang's summer hit single "Lifestyle" by Birdman, Young Thug, and Rich Homie Quan, the tour pairs rap icon and Cash Money Records co-founder Birdman with two of the genre's rising stars for a cross-country jaunt hitting major markets everywhere.

    The tour will be an unforgettable hip-hop event and each show will be a night to remember, featuring a formidable and unstoppable trio of talents.

    About The Lifestyle Tour, Birdman comments, "I became friends with Thug first, and he introduced me to Quan. I saw talent in them, and I wanted to see them reach the next level. I saw that they weren't just rappers; they are artists with the potential to be musicians—like Lil Wayne, Drake and Nicki Minaj. I recognized that type of spirit in them from day one. I saw something I'd seen 20 years ago when I first started this. While we recorded 'Lifestyle,' I made a plan. I knew that it'd catch everybody off guard for me to feature these two young men who are rising in the game on the first single from the new Rich Gang album and do a tour."

    But wait, there's even MORE good news, as if the tour news wasn't already reason to shout "Huzzah!"

    To advance the tour, the trio is releasing The Tour mixtape, which will featuring original music from these three presences as well as a bevy of high-profile guest appearances. You can download the mixtape exclusively here.

    "I feel like this is one of the best things I've ever done," said Young Thug. "I thank God first and foremost. There's an element that this tour and mixtape will be gigantic. I just clicked with Birdman because I always dreamed of being down with him in some way. This is just the beginning though."

    All of this activity sets the stage for the forthcoming release of the second Rich Gang album —Birdman Presents: Rich Gang, available later this fall. This time around, the record sees Young Thug and Richie Homie Quan collaborate with various Cash Money Records stars and extended family over robust production from top names in the studio.
