From The Top Of The Charts To The Stage, Badda General and ZJ Liquid Announce “The Barrel Tour”
Powerhouse Reggae and Dancehall artists and collaborators Badda General and ZJ Liquid are pleased to announce “The Barrel Tour.” Named after their massive “The Barrel” (Gold Up Records) collabo and remix featuring Shatta Wale and Stylo G, the explosive tour will kick off in November.
“The Barrel Tour,” falling at the heels of a string of monstrous releases from the duo, is set to hit several U.S. East Coast cities during its first leg. Although the pandemic naturally put many things on hold, it did not cool the Badda General and ZJ Liquid musical fire. At last, an opportunity to safely offer live entertainment to fans has presented itself! The Badda General and ZJ Liquid team encourage promoters to contact them soon if there is interest, as dates are moving quickly.
“It’s now or never,” said Badda General. “For me, this will truly be my first time officially touching stages as ‘Badda General’ and I couldn’t be more excited.”
“This is the best way for us to give our fans an interactive Dancehall experience. It’s a show they won’t forget,” says ZJ Liquid.
To add to the already blazing music pair’s line up, special guests will join their shows in select cities. With Badda General and ZJ Liquid’s artistic reach, “The Barrel Tour” promises to be a high caliber Dancehall event.

Offering social commentary through their humorous lyrical exchanges, the songs drew scores of listeners into the timely — and sometimes necessary musical conversations.
In addition to the wildly popular “The Barrel” single and remix, the Dancehall collaborators won over fans with buzzing songs like “State of the Union,” “Curfew,” “Current Events J.A.,” “Trending News Jamaica,” “Con Artist,” “Barrel Riddim Saga” and “Cream Crackers.” Viral sensations, spanning attention from the underground to sound systems, DJs, top media platforms, leading radio stations (i.e., BBC Radio 1xtra, Hot 97) and streaming giants (i.e., Tidal, Pandora), it’s no secret that the Badda General and ZJ Liquid formula works!
Amidst the pandemic, the Badda General brand and solo career peaked and was virally consumed by the masses via an amazing catalogue of red-hot music.

The creative dropped his 4th album “Point A View” to rave reviews in 2020.
