Cappadonna and Remedy who is Jewish, are planning a short tour of Israel in May as reported in a previous update. The duo plans to perform in the cities of Tel Aviv, Beersheva, Haifa, Eilat, and Jerusalem.
Cappadonna explained the tour plans in a statement, "As Americans and hip-hop artists, we want to show solidarity with the people of Israel. No one thinks that a Hebrew-speaking country has anything to do with hip-hop, but hip-hop is alive in Israel and we are going there to foster the new generations' way of communicating."
Exact tour dates and venues will be released in the coming weeks.
