If you were praying about the possibility of Jay Z and Beyoncé touring together, then consider your prayers answered. This morning, Beyoncé posted the official tour line up for the On The Run tour with her husband Jay Z. I’m going to go ahead and call it the hottest tour of the summer.
The first show kicks off on June 25th in Miami, then makes its way through several cities, ending on August 5th in San Francisco. Tickets aren’t on sale yet but prices are projected to run from $45 to $200+, so start saving your coins! Check out all of the dates and locations here.
Recently Jhene Aiko was featured in the latest issue of GQ Magazine that displayed her petite and toned body. In the sexy photo’s the singer can be seen posing on the beach and also in some sexy lingerie. She talked to GQ about the kind of men she’s attracted to and she said:
I’m pretty open-minded and so I like to give different types of guys chances. My ideal date would be driving with no destination and just talk, get to know each other, get lost. And I’ve actually done that with someone and it was a pretty good driving date. If it was was just like, ‘Get ready’ and then we’re going mountain climbing, and I’m like, ‘Wha? I have on flip flops.’ I like to be spontaneous, but I don’t like it to be a surprise.

Well well well. My ‘husband’ Maxwell has decided to get back on the road
and not release the SUMMERS’ album like he said he would. I’ll take whatever he gives us though. A summer tour before we get to hear your next album? Sign me up! Maxwell announced the tour on Facebook yesterday–I was very excited when I saw a Texas date on the list.
But then I checked today and it’s no longer there. SMH
Some of the dates announced include locations in Colorado, California, Tennessee and Pennslyvania. I’m surprised there aren’t any stops in major music spots like NYC, Philly, Austin or Atlanta on there. But maybe he’s adding dates and locations over time, so check back frequently here. Presale starts tomorrow!
Tomorrow will mark the 20th year since Nas released his debut album Illmatic, and 20 years later not only has he been labeled as a hip hop legend in just that city of New York but worldwide.

This week Nas released Illmatic XX, which is a remastered version of the original album along with unreleased remixes and an unreleased track, “I’m a Villian”. Aside from that, there has also been a number of interviews that have been released. These interviews shed light on Nas’s upbringing in the Queensbridge section of Queens, NY. Along with reflections from hip hop heavyweights who talk about Nas’s journey as well as his huge impact on the hip hop game. Nas also performed the entire Illmatic album in it’s entirety last month at the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. as apart of his “One Mic: Hip Hop Culture Worldwide Festival.
Just this past Wednesday the documentary Time Is Illmatic premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City. Directed by One9 and written by Erik Parker, the documentary talks about the making of the album as well as the influence it has had on the hip hop culture and even the musical impact Nas’s father Olu Dara has had on him.
