The 32-year-old emcee, whose real name is Keenon Dequan Ray Jackson, is set to kick off the 17-stop nationwide run at Fillmore Auditorium in Denver, Colorado on January 20.

AceShowbiz - YG is set to hit the road soon. Less than a month after he released his new album "I Got Issues", the "Go Loko" spitter announced on social media that he will embark on a North America tour next year.

The 32-year-old emcee, whose real name is Keenon Dequan Ray Jackson, broke the news on Instagram on Tuesday, October 25. Based on the announcement, he will kick things off at Denver, Colorado's Fillmore Auditorium on January 20.

YG will later greet his fans in Salt Lake City and Garden City before heading to major cities along the West Coast for the remainder of the month. In mid-February, he will perform in New York and Boston. He is slated to conclude the 17-stop nationwide run in Honolulu on February 23.

"THE RED CUP TOUR with @ohgeesy & @kalan.frfr," he penned in the accompanying message. " 'Artist Presale Password: TURNMEUP' available now www.4hunnid.com/tour link in Bio @daysulan @d3szn with me too."

YG dropped "I Got Issues" on September 30. Serving as his sixth studio album, it features guest appearances from the likes of Mozzy, D3szn, Duki, Cuco, J. Cole, Moneybagg Yo, H.E.R., Roddy Ricch, Post Malone as well as Nas.

Speaking of the record, YG said on Instagram, "The album I Got Issues is basically insight on my life, an update on my life." He went on to share, "I feel like my people haven't heard from me in a real way, in a long time. So I'm giving them this album…I'm here with all my issues, you know what I'm sayin'."

There are 14 tracks in the album, including "How to Rob a Rapper", which led the emcee to get backlash. Many people took issue with him releasing the song after PnB Rock was fatally shot during a Los Angeles robbery.

YG, however, insisted that it was not a diss. When appearing on the "L.A. Leakers", he explained, "I gotta say this, and 'How to Rob a Rapper' is not a diss it's just a message to these rappers please be on yo s**t."

" 'How to Rob a Rapper' is one of my favorite records because I got back to my storytelling bag," he continued. "I'm not glorifying what's going on in the city, but, bro, I'm from L.A. I got dead homies, friends behind this city. So I'ma talk about how it is - I ain't sugarcoating nothing."
