Making a name for himself in L.A. and beyond with his melodic rhymes, Kalan.FrFr is ready to take his show on the road. Gearing up for his first live dates since early 2020, Kalan announces the “TwoFr Tour,” which embarks this fall. Kicking off in Houston on November 3rd, the tour weaves through the Western U.S., culminating in two hometown shows at The Novo on November 23rd-24th. His first tour since Fall 2019, the “TwoFr Tour” will feature performances of songs from TwoFr 2, the Compton-born artist’s latest project. Tickets for the “TwoFr Tour” are available for sale on Friday May 21st at 12pm local time.
TwoFr 2 is an excellent showcase of what helps the Compton native standout in a crowded hometown scene, namely his silky, rhythmic croon and his sharp sense of songcraft. The project earned critical praise from outlets like Okayplayer, who called it “breezy, bouncy music perfect for a trip to the West Coast,” and Lyrical Lemonade, who called the album “some of the best music coming out of the West Coast,” as well as positive notices in HotNewHipHop, RESPECT, and more. The new project is home to “Scoring,“ which peaked in the Top 30 of Urban Radio airplay charts, “Get In,” a lumbering, piano-heavy banger with an appearance from Stunna 4 Vegas, and “No Love” ft. Mozzy, which has a music video that pays tribute to Paid In Full, one of Kalan’s favorite films. Most recently, Kalan shared the Miami-set video for the project’s poignant opening track “Look At Me.”
The sequel to Kalan’s breakout 2018 tape TwoFr, TwoFr 2 takes the newly-minted Roc Nation signee’s artistry to a new level, complementing his raunchy love songs with introspection and hard-earned wisdom. Featuring production from Cypress Moreno, Bankroll Got It, and more, TwoFr 2 is available everywhere via First Class Entertainment/Roc Nation.
A major figure in Los Angeles’ stacked rap scene, recently crashing the Top 10 of Billboard’s Emerging L.A. Artists chart, Kalan.FrFr earned accolades and co-signs for his breezy melodies and hard-hitting bars. In recent months, the artist’s singular alchemy caught the attention of L.A. rap superstar YG, who hopped on the remix for Kalan’s hard-hitting “Right Wit It” in 2020. A vocalist with many dimensions, the artist earned praise from Pitchfork in 2019 for his pure rapping ability on his fan-favorite “Hot N Ready (Freestyle)“. With TwoFr 2, Kalan solidifies his unique position on the West Coast scene, and builds even more anticipation about great things to come.
