Hip-hop fans face a double-header in Auckland in September, with big name rappers A$AP Ferg and Skepta playing back-to-back shows.

Firstly, Harlem rapper A$AP Ferg is upsizing from his past two performances at The Studio to a larger venue, The Powerstation.

Ferg, real name Darold Ferguson Jr, will perform there on September 22 on the back of his second album, Always Strive and Prosper.

Part of A$AP Rocky's A$AP Mob, Ferg is known for hard-hitting songs Let It Go and Shabba, but his latest work showcases a more upbeat side, with guests including Missy Elliott and Skrillex.

Tickets for the show go on sale on June 2. Spark and My Live Nation pre-sales begin on June 1.


Meanwhile, British grime MC Skepta is performing in the same venue the following night.

It's part of a three-date New Zealand tour beginning on September 21 at Dunedin's Town Hall, and continuing at Christchurch's CPSA on September 22.

He'll finish up at The Powerstation on September 23. The tour is on the back of his latest album, Konnichiwa.
