Ken Carson's 'Chaos World Tour' Is Coming to a City Near You — But Is a New Album on the Way?

Atlanta-born rapper Ken Carson has carved out a niche for himself in the world of hip-hop. He started out as a SoundCloud artist, releasing a string of hits on the platform before catching the attention of Playboi Carti. Ken later signed to Playboi’s Opium Record Label, quickly becoming one of the hottest underground rappers around.

“The underground thing, that word itself, I feel it means a lot of different things to a lot of different people,” Ken told Complex in 2022. “I don’t feel I’m underground because I can actually pull out shows. It’s different when you’re underground. I feel like I was underground [but I’m not anymore].”

Today, Ken is an established artist, and he has the accolades to back it up. He has released three studio albums, including 2023’s A Great Chaos, and he has a massive following on social media. His fans are now calling for the rapper to release new music before 2024 comes to a close.

Ken Carson is going on tour in 2024!

It is currently unclear if Ken will be dropping a new album in 2024, but he has officially confirmed a tour. The Opium rapper will kick off the massive tour in May, making stops in Orlando, Houston, Los Angeles, and Atlanta.

In September, Ken will embark on an international journey – performing at venues across the United Kingdom, France, Germany, and the Czech Republic. Tickets for Ken’s Chaos World Tour can be purchased online, with prices ranging based on the selected venue.

Ken’s tour announcement comes days after Playboi Carti called off his Antagonist Tour, which Ken was set to co-headline. Ticketmaster has labeled the upcoming tour dates as “canceled” or “postponed,” but Carti has yet to make an official announcement. Fans of the Opium rappers were not happy with the news and took to social media to share their frustrations.

“He bought all that new jewelry he was flexing in that video with our money for the tour. Put your faith in Jesus!” one person tweeted.

Another added: “Playboi Carti has officially canceled the Antagonist tour. [He is the] greatest scammer of our generation, hands down.”
