Yung Joc and Cartel will be headlining the third installment of the Crocs Next Step Campus Tour this fall. The college-oriented tour will be hitting 15 college campuses beginning on August 29 in Reno, NV with more dates to be added. The last booked show so far is on September 26 in Tucson, AZ. Yung Joc will not appear on two shows. MC Lars is also on the package.

The tour will feature an interactive music experience, the Xbox 360 Live stage, where attendees can participate in the ultimate gaming experience, Crocs tattoo studio and much more entertainment.

The Crocs Next Step Campus Tour is known for bringing some of the hottest talent to colleges across the country and the upcoming fall session is no exception. Joc has taken the hip-hop world by storm. In his first year on the scene, he was nominated for Grammy, American Music, BET and Billboard awards and his debut full-length record, “New Joc City,” soared to platinum.

Cartel has developed a reputation for being one of the most fun and talented bands around. It has quickly garnered a devoted and noticeably growing fan base for its acute sense of pop songwriting and an ability to write timeless songs with genuine subject matter.

MC Lars is a member of what he dubs the “iGeneration,” a group born and raised in the time of the Ninja Turtles, cassette tapes and new wave music, who now live in the age of “Desperate Housewives,” Sidekicks and screamo bands. He has become the hero of this new generation, addressing their thoughts and every day struggles in his music.
