Wu-Tang Clan and Nas are teaming up for a fall tour with dozens of tour dates.
The New York hailing artists have dubbed their tour the NY State of Mind Tour. In addition to being an ode to their hometown, the tour name harkens back to the song of the same name on Nas’ debut album Illmatic (1994).
The upcoming shows will kick off at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in St. Louis on August 30, making stops in Charlotte, West Palm Beach, Houston, Dallas, and Phoenix before concluding at the legendary Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on October 4.

In addition to their forthcoming live collaboration, the Wu-Tang Clan recently saw the induction of their 1993 album, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), into the Library of Congress’s National Recording Registry. As for Nas, the rapper is coming off the release of two 2021 albums, King’s Disease II and Magic. Both Wu-Tang Clan and Nas have been and still are touchstones of the hip-hop and rap genres, which indicates that the NY State of Mind Tour will be of historic occasion.
