Florida rapper, Plies, is getting ready for his eagerly awaited new album, and to help celebrate its release, he's preparing to head on the road for a nationwide promo tour.
The trek will see the Fort Meyers-based rapper paying tribute to his fans in the U.S. military with a series of appearances in association with Army & Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) and Navy Exchange Service Command.
As far as the upcoming album, titled Definition Of Real, it's already becoming anticipated as the single "Bust Is Baby Part 2" begins to take off on both radio and TV. The video is in heavy rotation on BET and has recently been added to MTV2.
In conjunction with the upcoming release, Plies is holding a special "Real Things" promotion in which two diamond chains will be awarded to a pair of very lucky fans. The promotion -- which will run for three weeks, beginning on the album's June 10th street date -- allows fans to enter for a chance to win either a diamond "Plies Bust It Baby" chain or a diamond "Goon" chain.
The rapper is also offering exclusive swag to fans who pre-order the album via the Atlantic Records Media Store. In addition to an immediate MP3 download of "Bust It Baby Part 2," buyers will receive their choice of a men's "Certified Goon" t-shirt or a girl's "Bust It Baby" baby-t.
Additionally, he also is giving fans signed up to his official fan club at PliesWorld.com a chance to score tickets to shows in their area, first look at videos, photos and other exclusives.
Definition Of Real is slated for release June 10.
