Good news for DJ Too Tuff, of the legendary Philly hip-hop act Tuff Crew. He's off probation.
Too Tuff, born Joseph Hicks, was released from jail earlier this year - he was sentenced on an assault charge stemming from a fight at Silk City (5th & Spring Garden) while on parole for weed possession.
Now that he's free to travel, Too Tuff can join fellow original Tuff Crew members LA Kidd, Ice Dog and Tone Love for a European tour in March, when the group will play Paris, Denmark, Wales, London and Amsterdam, performing some of their hits and new material.
Too Tuff, who is battling thyroid cancer, grew up at 4th & Girard and attended St. Joe's Prep.
He recently teamed up with Michael "Big Dog" Torres to create Big Dog Recordz and Promotions, which has released "DJ Too Tuff's Escape from Alcachaz" and "Tuff Crew's Greatest Hits."
