Hip-Hop legends Wu-Tang Clan and Nas are teaming up to co-headline their tour “NY State of Mind.” The tour will touch down in 25 cities across North America from August 30 to October 4. With the Queens rapper Nas and the legendary Long Island collective Wu-Tang Clan coming together, this double feature tour is perfect to give you a taste of the big apple. It’s only right the New York rappers name the tour after Nas’ “NY State of Mind,” a track from his classic album Illmatic.

Although both artists have been in the rap game for a minute, they continue to expand on their success today. Earlier this April (2022), Wu-Tang’s debut album, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), which heavily influenced the sound of East Coast rap, was archived in the Library of Congress. As well, their biographical series “Wu-Tang: An American Saga” is set to return to Hulu for a second season on September 8. As for Nasir, in April he delivered an iconic performance at the 2022 Grammys. Additionally, he released his two latest albums Magic and King’s Disease II both in 2021.

This summer to fall, these MCs are bringing the heat to a city near you. Tickets go on sale Tuesday (April 26) at 10 a.m. EST on Ticketmaster. You can check out the tour dates below.
