Last week, just as humankind was calming down from the rush instigated by the announcement of a Childish Gambino x Rae Sremmurd tour, official-looking Facebook event pages started popping up for OTR II. 



The event pages and accompanying Ticketmaster links were almost immediately removed, but not before screenshots started circulating on Twitter. Jay and B's reps refrained from any clarification until Monday.


DJ Khaled recently grabbed the couple for his new Father of Asahd single "Top Off." The track, which also features Future, sees Beyoncé credited as simply "B" and includes Jay's response to George Zimmerman's threats and alligator comments. A video for the collab is expected soon.

The original On the Run tour spanned four months back in 2014, resulting in a special HBO broadcast of the Paris dates directed by Jonas Åkerlund. Hopefully, HBO and Jonas are planning to do something similar with the sequel.
