New {Music} Concert: Nas & Lauryn Hill Announce Joint Tour Coming Fall 2017

Published On May 31, 2017 | By admin | FAME

They haven’t collaborated since their 1996 single, “If I Ruled the World,” but that’s not stopping Nas and Lauryn Hill. The duo announced that they’ll be hitting the road together this Fall.

The iconic artists will kick off their month-long jaunt in Chicago on September 7th, and wrap things up in Vancouver on October 11th. Reggae artist, Chronixx, will open the first 11 dates, with comedian Hannibal Buress grabbing the torch for the remaining stops.

When asked about the outing, Nas said, “This is history. Better late than never. Life is good.” And who knows? If things go well, maybe we’ll be blessed with a brand new Escobar/L-Boogie duet in the near future.

Tickets officially go on sale this Friday June 2nd via Live Nation, and I know some of you will hesitate about making the purchase due to Lauryn’s past lack of punctuality – but for what it’s worth, she performed over Memorial Day Weekend at the Soundest Festival in St. Paul, Minnesota, and her set actually started ON TIME.
