Nas and Ms. Lauryn Hill team up for America's hip-hop dream (good or bad) tour

Hip-hop gods Nas and Ms. Lauryn Hill have descended from their sprawling unicorn ranch on Mount Olympus to grace us mortals with the dream tour most of us never knew we had… until now. Nas has a few solo dates lined up — including stops at New Orleans’ Voodoo Festival and Asheville’s always fascinating Moog Festival — before he joins up with Ms. Hill in Dallas for the sure-to-be-legendary Life Is Good/Black Rage tour. And when such a tour exists, how could life be anything but?

The dual-sided name comes from Nas’ recent #1 album, Life Is Good, along with Ms. Lauryn Hill’s new track, “Black Rage,” about racial inequality. The track comes out this fall. As the tour press release puts it, Ms. Hill released the song “as a juxtaposition to the statement ‘life is good,’ which she believes can only be so when these long standing issues are addressed and resolved.”
