Nas & Ms. Lauryn Hill Announce Life Is Good/Black Rage Tour

Please say the Ms. On Thursday tickets will go on sale for the just announced Life is Good/Black Rage Tour which will kick off on October 6th in Columbia, MD and continue for 18 dates before the final show at Radio City Music Hall in NY on New Year’s Eve. Lauryn will miss the first few dates but will join Nas in Dallas and appear at most of the shows thereafter.

Hip-Hop and music superpowers Nas and Ms. Lauryn Hill announce the Life Is Good/Black Rage tour, dates this fall. Both musicians, who are responsible for influencing a generation of music lovers, will share the stage for an experience that fans have long been waiting for. Tickets can be purchased beginning this Friday, with a pre-sale in select markets beginning Thursday.

The tour takes its name from Nas’s groundbreaking #1 album, Life Is Good and “Black Rage,” a new song by Ms. Lauryn Hill about the derivative effects of racial inequity and abuse. The track, which will be released this fall, is described by Ms. Hill 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.

“I use the performance platform as an opportunity to express the energy of that moment, and the intention behind it,” said Ms. Hill. “I’ve been a long standing rebel against the stale, over commoditization. As artists we have opportunity to help the public evolve, raise consciousness and awareness, teach, heal, enlighten and inspire in ways the democratic process may not be able to touch. So we keep it moving.”

“This is history,” Nas said. “Better late than never. Life is good!”
