Yesterday, Uzi and Carti announced their joint trek, which was set to run from Nov. 17 through Dec. 21 with special guests G Herbo and SOB x RBE. A press release even claimed that additional dates would be added to the tour.
Prior to the tour announcement, the duo had been teasing their collaborative project 16*29. It is unclear how, if at all, this changes those plans.
