LOS ANGELES, March 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Beast Coast, the NYC Hip Hop collective comprised of Flatbush Zombies, Pro Era (featuring Joey Bada$$, Kirk Knight, Nyck Caution, CJ Fly, and Powers Pleasant) and The Underachievers, confirms their Escape From New York Tour. The tour is inspired by the 10-member supergroup’s original historic Beast Coast Tour in 2013. Produced by Live Nation, the 27-city tour will officially kick off in Seattle, WA on July 23, and make stops in Los Angeles, Atlanta, Toronto, Detroit, and more before wrapping August 25 in Baltimore. Official tour dates are in addition to already-announced Red Rocks show on April 13, as well as festival plays at NYC’s Governors Ball and Miami’s Rolling Loud.

Yesterday, Beast Coast released their highly anticipated first-ever collaborative track "Left Hand" off of their upcoming project. The hypnotic metronomic beat on "Left Hand" provides a propulsive backdrop as the 10 MCs cypher from verse to verse. The song was co-produced by Tyler Dopps and Sam Wish.
