The “Nostalgia Tour” kicks off on March 15, and it’s the same day fans will get the single, “Breakfast”, with Chicago’s Mick Jenkins. Two days later, on March 17, Nile is proudly dropping his album “Nostalgia Everclear”.
Nile stopped by the Radio Milwaukee studios to chat with HYFIN about the tour, the album, his deep love for Chicago and opening up for Pusha T. Check out the conversation, below.
