To promote his self-titled fourth studio album, Houston rapper/producer Wine-O will be taking his music on the road to state prisons across the country.
Gaining success providing beats for the likes of Paul Wall, Mike Jones and Slim Thug, Wine-O explained the 15-date tour is a much-needed way to keep in contact with fans behind bars. “I feel that it’s important to hit a market that is often forgot about,” he said. Once a man of the prison system, he added, “I hope that other artists like T.I. and Lil Wayne do the same.”
Wine-O is currently scheduled for an August 24 release through World Wide Music/E1 Music. Tour dates will be released in the coming weeks.
