Multi-platinum Def Jam recording artist Nas will embark on a 21-date summer tour in support of his untitled ninth studio album.

 

The Jones Experience summer tour will kick off July 22 in Montreal, Canada, seven days after the highly anticipated and controversial album hits stores.

 

Produced by Guerilla Union, the entity behind the Rock the Bells and Paid Dues Festivals, the tour will bring Nas to various small clubs across North America, in what Nas described as “a big show in an intimate venue.”

 

Nas will be joined on the tour by Talib Kweli, who still touring in support of last year’s Eardrum, radio personality and producer DJ Green Lantern, who contributed to the new Untitled project and newcomer Jay Electronica.

 

The Jones Experience runs through Labor Day weekend and coincides with Nas’ appearances on the Rock the Bells Festival’s previously announced ten-date run.

 

“I truly appreciate all the fans that have supported me over the years, and this is my way of giving back,” Nas told AllHipHop.com in a statement. “My album drops on July 15 and I hope to take the movement from the stores to the stage.”

 

The second release on Nas’ Def Jam imprint The Jones Experience, the untitled album features production and appearances from a variety of artists and musicians, including Busta Rhymes, Mark Ronson, the Dapkings, DJ Toomp, Stic.Man, Stargate and Cool & Dre.

 

Nas’ untitled album landed in stores today (July 15).
