In what’s now 20-plus years in the making, stemming back to their 1996 classic, “If I Ruled The World,” hip-hop luminaries Nas and Lauryn Hill have finally announced a joint tour this summer, the Life Is Good/Black Rage Tour. The festivities kick off next month with Hill going solo for a couple of shows before teaming up with Nas in September along with Chronixx and, on select dates, Hannibal Buress. When asked about the tour, Ms. Hill had the following to say:

I use the performance platform as an opportunity to express the energy of that moment, and the intention behind it. I’ve been a long standing rebel against the stale, over-commoditization. As artists, we have opportunity to help the public evolve, raise consciousness and awareness; teach, heal, enlighten and inspire in ways the democratic process may not be able to touch. So we keep it moving.

Meanwhile, Nas says “This is history. Better late than never.”

Check out all the dates below while tickets go on sale Friday, June 2 via Live Nation.
