Lauryn Hill and Nas announced they’re going on a North American tour together. So, I’m really bad with geography…does that include a stop in Los Angeles? Tour dates inside.
Lauryn Hill and Nas’s tour kicks off September 7th in Chicago. Get this, not only is the Roots reggae singer Chronixx opening for 11 shows BUT comedian Hannibal Buress is opening for the remaining six shows! Now, have you ever attended a musical concert that opened with a comedian?! I’m here for it!
“This is history. Better later than never” Nas said about the tour. If you don’t remember, these two recorded one of my favorite rap songs of all time, If I Ruled the World. I remember when I repeatedly rewinded the VCR tape of the video so that I could learn the lyrics. I will kareoke that song better than anybody. What am I saying? I hate kareoke!
You have THREE DAYS to get your coins together because tickets go on sale Friday at 10 am. And in case you were wondering, they’re performing in Los Angeles!
