Big Boi and Killer Mike still have a month’s worth of dates left as part of their Shoes for Running Tour. However, as Killer Mike reports on Twitter, Big Boi needs surgery after injuring his knee, which will be followed by six weeks of rest. As a result, the remaining tour dates have been pushed back until September.
Mike also noted the recent passing of Sharon Benjamin-Hodo, the mother of Big Boi’s Outkast groupmate André 3000. He wrote on Twitter, “Its best we all home”.
