Exclusive: Propaganda's Tour Bus Playlist Featuring Warpaint, Ben Khan, Copeland

Catch him on tour now with Kings Kaleidoscope!

By Taylor Irwin - Sep 12, 2017
Christian rapper and poet Propaganda hails from Los Angeles and is back on the scene with his latest album, 'Crooked', which finds the emcee at his most honest yet, commenting on the social issues that are plaguing the US. Catch him on tour, when he'll be hitting the stage in cities across the country with Kings Kaleidoscope. Catch him on tour now with Kings Kaleidoscope!

2017 has seen its fair share of ups and downs, but nothing sums it up and spits it back out at us like Propaganda's latest release, Crooked. Between his wicked flow and sharp lyricism, the Los Angeles emcee struck gold with his fifth solo album, thanks in large part to the commentary he provides on topics such as Standing Rock, the war in Iraq, and the injustices faced on a day-to-day basis by various communities in this country.

“I believe in art for art’s sake,” he said in a press release. “I think art is what makes us human. I believe art actually shapes and gives commentary to the human experience." Using music to masterfully convey his thoughts on current events is one of the reasons he's found such a solid fanbase, one that will be showing out for his upcoming tour with chamber pop band, Kings Kaleidoscope. Kicking off tonight, the run will take the Christian rapper to Seattle, Phoenix, San Diego, and more before wrapping on September 20 in Sacramento.

To get an idea of what the "Bear With Me" musician will be bumping on his journey up and down the west coast, check out his Tour Bus Playlist below featuring tracks from Kendrick Lamar, Copeland, Warpaint, and more. Then make sure to Track him on Bandsintown so you don't miss him when he comes through your city!
