The trio will perform songs from their new album, Strength & Loyalty, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. If you can’t make it to Chicago for the show, don’t fret, the concert will air live on MSN’s website  — http://music.msn.com/bonethugsnharmony — on August 6 at 9:00 pm EST.

On September 6, Nas will join the Dave Matthews Band, John Mayer and Phil Vassar in “A Concert for Virginia Tech.” The event will be held at the university’s Lane Stadium and will be free of charge to all students. All of the artists have agreed to waive their fees and will perform for free. “We’re extremely grateful for the compassion and generosity of these artists who wished to create a very special event where our students, faculty and staff can come together to celebrate the spirit and resiliency of our university community as we being a new academic year,” says Charles Steger, President of Virginia Tech.

    It’s nice that Nas is doing that and it’s for a good cause, cause outside of a charity event I’d never play with that crop of shit that’s playing that event.

    Cho The V T Shooter Was A Mind Controlled Goverment Assassin. The Campus Of V T Should Have Been Locked Down After The 1st Two Murders But The Officials At V T Did Not Follow Proper Procedures To Seal The Perimeter Of The Campus. Also How Could This Guy Have Done All Of The Things That He Did In Such A Short Amount Of Time Such As Murder 2 People Go Back To His Room And Allegedly Record The Suicide Video In Which Parts Aired In The Mainstream News Then Walk All The Way Across The Campus To The Post Office All Allegedly While Carrying Firearms To And From Where Were The Campus Police? The Blacksburg Police? Or Even The F B I Who Believe It Or Not Were On Campus Already And Were Doing Mock Drills Of A Similar Nature On The Very Same Campus. The Fbi Is Stationed In Quantico V A Which Is Not Far From The Shootings. Wake Up America They Are Incrementally Getting Us Ready For The U S A To Be A Police State Where We Live Under A Dictator Who Can Suspend Elections In The Event Of Martial Law
