It seems that Tyler, the Creator cannot be stopped. The artist’s fifth studio album, Igor, which was released in 2019, is now a platinum-certified album by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The album, which has sold over 1,000,000 copies, continues to cement Tyler, the Creator as one of the most influential artists of this generation.

Last year, the artist received his first-ever Grammy win for Igor in the Best Rap Album category. To date, the rapper has been nominated for a total of three Grammy Awards. Igor‘s platinum certification comes on the heels of the recent release of his sixth studio album, Call Me If You Get Lost, which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 Albums chart after its release this past June. Since then, the eclectic rapper has performed a number of surprise shows in support of the album in addition to his most recent set at Lollapalooza.

Today, Tyler, the Creator announced the 2022 tour dates for Call Me If You Get Lost. The 34-show tour, which includes Kali Uchis, Vince Staples and Teezo Touchdown, is set to begin in February and conclude in April. Tickets are set to go on sale Friday, August 5.
