Two hip hop icons on the same tour can only mean one thing and that greatness. Both Nas and Lauryn Hill has announced upcoming dates for their joint tour “Life Is Good/Black Rage.”
The tour gets underway on October 6th in Columbia, Maryland. However, that show will only feature Nas. Fans will have to wait until October 29 to see them both on the same stage in Dallas, Texas.
“I use the performance platform as an opportunity to express the energy of that moment, and the intention behind it,” said Lauryn Hill. “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.”
A very excited Nas also shared his reaction to the tour on Twitter.
“This is history,” Nas tweeted. “Better late than never. Life is good!”
