No, we’re not messing with you. This is the real deal.

New Jersey’s own Lauryn Hill, and Queens’ own Nas have announced that they will indeed be going on tour together! Can you say lit?

According to reports, the two iconic artists will be joined on tour by reggae artist, Chronixx, and comedian, Hannibal Buress. Apparently, news of the tour came not too long after Nas sang Lauryn Hill a “Stevie Wonder-style” birthday song (gosh, we love that version) celebrating her 42nd year:

The 17 cities tour kicks off in Chicago on September 7. (Sidenote: Will this new tour get in the way of Nas’ alleged budding romance?)
