More than two decades after Lauryn Hill sang the hook on Nas’ 1996 track “If I Ruled the World,” the pair are joining forces again for a North American tour, beginning in Chicago on Sept. 7 and wrapping in Vancouver on Oct. 11.
Comedian Hannibal Buress and reggae star Chronixx will also appear on select tour stops, according to Billboard.
The announcement comes after Nas gave a birthday shoutout to the former Fugees front woman last week (May 26). “Singing Happy Birthday Stevie Wonder style to my soul sister Ms Lauryn Hill blessings and blessings love. (Free the Big Bro Lord ),” Nas captioned his post.
Tickets for the forthcoming tour go on sale Friday, June 2, at the Live Nation website. But, Citi cardmembers will have access to purchase pre-sale tickets on Wednesday, May 31 at 10 a.m. local time until Thursday, June 1 at 10:00 p.m. courtesy of Citi’s Private Pass program.
