Nas and Lauryn Hill are hitting the road together in 2017 and kicking it all off on September 7th in Chicago, IL.
Straight out of Brooklyn, NY, Nasir Bin Olu Dara Jones, better known by his stage name Nas, is a rapper, record producer, actor, and entrepreneur. The son of jazz musician Olu Dara, Nas has sold over 25,000,000 records worldwide. His debut album Illmatic received universal acclaim from both critics and the hip-hop community and is frequently ranked as the greatest hip hop album of all time. His eleventh studio album, Life Is Good was nominated for Best Rap Album at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards. About.com ranked him first on their list of the “50 Greatest MCs of All Time” in 2014, and a year later, Nas was featured on “The 10 Best Rappers of All Time” list by Billboard.
Born in South Orange, NJ, Lauryn Hill is a singer, songwriter, record producer, and actress. She is best known for being a member of the Fugees and for her critically acclaimed solo album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. Hill began singing with her music-oriented family during her childhood. In high school, Hill was approached by Pras Michel to start a band, which his cousin, Wyclef Jean, soon joined. They renamed themselves the Fugees and released the albums Blunted on Reality and the Grammy Award-winning The Score. Hill’s romantic relationship with Jean led to the split of the band in 1997, after which she began to focus on solo projects. The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill remains Hill’s only solo studio album. The album debuted at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200 and has sold approximately eight million copies there. It included the singles “Doo Wop (That Thing)” (also a number one), “Ex-Factor” (became her biggest solo hit in UK), and “Everything Is Everything”. At the 41st Grammy Awards, the record earned her five awards, including Album of the Year and Best New Artist.
Hannibal Buress and Chronixx will be joining on select dates.
