Nas and Lauryn Hill will join forces for a North American tour this fall. Support will come from Chronixx and comedian Hannibal Buress on select dates.
The two co-headliners have a history together. They went on a similar tour in 2012, after Nas released his latest album, Life is Good. Hill also collaborated with Nas on his 1996 single, “If I Ruled the World (Imagine That),” which was nominated for a Grammy Award in 1997.
The tour will kick off September 7th in Chicago, mostly stopping at outdoor amphitheaters before wrapping up October 11th in Vancouver.
Nas has been quite a bit more active than Hill in recent years, releasing the aforementioned Life is Good in 2012 and contributing to the recently-cancelled Netflix original series The Get Down. Hill hasn’t released anything since 2002’s MTV Unplugged, although her lone solo album, 1998’s The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, is consistently listed on critic’s best-of lists and has sold over 19 million copies worldwide.
