Mos Def To Kick Off Tour in August
Mos Def is hitting the road this weekend for his latest summer venture, The Ecstatic Tour.
The North American tour—supporting his critically-acclaimed, fourth solo album, The Ecstatic, which dropped in June—kicks off in Minneapolis on Saturday (August 1). The 19-date string of concerts will continue for five weeks, trekking from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and up north into Canada.
Jay Electronica will assist Mighty Mos along the trip, which concludes on September 5 in Hollywood. In addition Medina Green and Erykah Badu will also be making select appearances.
As XXLMag.com previously reported, Talib Kweli hinted at the possibility of Mos Def making cameos on another major summer hip-hop tour, Rock The Bells, for a Black Star reunion.
