Shane Eagle Will Be Joining Bas On His ‘Milky Way’ Tour

The South African rapper is going on tour with Dreamville's Bas.

South African rapper Shane Eagle is part of Bas' Milky Way Tour. The tour will have stops in the UK, France, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, France and more.

The South African MC isn't the only artist listed as a special guest on the Dreamville MC's tour. Audio Push and Lute will also be tagging along.


Shane will perform in most of the tour's stops, including Paris, Liege, Cologne, Prague, Warsaw, Berlin and Amsterdam.

The South African MC clearly doesn't know what the meaning of sleep is. He wrapped up his Yellow Tour in December last year, which had a few stops including Joburg, Pretoria and Cape Town.

Towards the end of last year, he dropped a gem of an EP, Never Grow Up, which is still on high rotation in these parts. Be sure to pick up a copy here, if you still haven't.

There's clearly something brewing between Shane Eagle and the Dreamville clique. When Bas was in South Africa for a few shows last year, Shane joined the rapper as a special guest.

The last time we spoke to Shane Eagle was when he had just released his debut album Yellow in 2017. The MC hinted on taking his extremely personal rhymes and hazy music worldwide, and he clearly didn't tell a lie.

Below is the full list of the Milky Way Tour dates.

The 10 Best HHP Songs Ranked

On the second anniversary of HHP's passing, we rank 10 of the South African hip-hop legend's best songs.

Jabulani Tsambo, popularly known by his alias HHP, was a pivotal part of South African hip-hop. Renowned for trailblazing the motswako sub-genre in the early 2000s, the rapper sadly passed away on October 24th, 2018 after a long and much publicised bout with depression.

During his active years, which span two decades (from 1997 to 2018), he was instrumental in breaking barriers and bridging the gap between kwaito and hip-hop in SA, from the late 90s to early 2000s.

He became a household name in the 2000s as he spearheaded the motswako movement, propelling it to the mainstream and solidifying his legendary status in the process.
