Hip-hop heads should get ready, because two of the most respected lyricists in the game are taking their act on the road. Nas and Lauryn Hill are all set to begin a North American tour later this year, starting on September 7.
The duo's most notable link up came on on the classic track, "If I Ruled The World" off Nas' It Was Written album, and it appears the two legends have remained close in the years since. Nas helped Hill ring in her 42nd birthday recently, sharing a picture of the pair on Instagram cutting a cake.

Seeing them reprise the classic song together is almost worth the price of admission by itself, and they'll be joined by comedian Hannibal Buress and reggae artist Chronixx for several stops on the tour.
This sounds like a pretty unique event, so if they're planning on coming through your city, make sure you jump on tickets when they go on sale through Live Nation on June 2nd. Tidal subscribers will have access to a special pre-sale starting at 10 a.m. on June 1.
