Hip-hop fans will soon be able to see two of the game’s legends on one bill: This fall, Nas and Lauryn Hill are hitting the road for a co-headlining North American tour.

Not unlike a joint trek they did back in 2012, this one spans the months of September and October. Stateside cities on the upcoming itinerary include Chicago, Boston, Miami, Dallas, Los Angeles, and Seattle; in Canada, Toronto and Vancouver will host play host to the pair. Reggae artist Chronixx and comedian Hannibal Buress will open select dates.

Nas’ last album came in 2012 with Life is Good, though he has teased a new release for 2017. Hill’s one and only solo album, of course, came in the form of 1998’s The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. In recent years, she’s released a series of singles, including “Black Rage (Sketch)”, “I Find It Hard To Say (Rebel)”, and a cover of Nina Simone’s “Feeling Good”.
