Currently, the Maryland native is in the middle of his “F**k the World, It’s a Wasteland Tour.” This epic journey began in Washington, D.C. in July and has hit major cities like New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Miami. The international leg of the tour kicked off on October 16 in Leeds, U.K., with additional European stops in London, Stockholm, Manchester, Berlin, and Paris.
