Move Over O.A.R. and Ben Folds: Jay-Z Preps College Tour

Jay-Z, perhaps better known now as Beyoncé's wife, is going on tour in support of the big bad Blueprint 3 (TMT Review) this fall. Jay-Z will be visiting a number of colleges during October and November in a swift move to appeal to the same crowd that enjoys the Jay-Z namedrop in Miley Cyrus' "Party in the USA."

Too bad I graduated last year, meaning I won't get a student discount for the inflated price. Whatever, I'd be out of place anyway, since I've never been a true follower of "Jay-Hova." When I was a little boy, Jay-Hova's Witnesses would come to our door, but my mom would turn off the lights and make everyone hide on the floor in the hallway.

Well, I guess there's no better place to recruit helpless, hapless followers than a college campus. Tickets are now on sale through Live Nation.

Now let's hear it for New York again, people!
