The former Crack Magazine cover star is set to embark on a 99p tour.

With his current UK tour coming to an end, the Northampton rapper has now announced an additional run of shows – and tickets will only cost 99p. In a video posted to Twitter, slowthai tells viewers that he wants fans to pick the venues.

He says, “I just want to see all of you and connect. Tell me where you want me to come, and I’ll be there.”

Encouraging fans to choose unconventional spaces, the rapper’s website reads: “Think: pubs, working mans clubs, youth centres, etc.” In a series of videos posted to his Instagram story channel, he says, “I’m trying to go to the places where no one ever goes. It don’t matter where you’re from; just shout me.” Submissions for ideas will cost 99p, which will include a ticket to the event.

The rapper’s debut album, Nothing Great About Britain, is slated for release on 17 May via True Panther/Method. In his Crack Magazine cover story, he said, “The whole tape is based around what makes us Britain and what builds us up as a place.”
