As announced today by Live Nation (Sept. 20), Vic Mensa will join JAY-Z's forthcoming 4:44 tour as a special guest, with the Chicago upstart slated to appear on each date of the tour's lengthy 31-city trek.

Back in July, the 24-year-old revealed that Hov gave him the invaluable advice to take a certain diss line off his debut album, The Autobiography, with the move further cementing the legendary rapper's genuine co-sign and support of the fast-rising MC, a gesture that countless aspiring emcees have only dreamed about.

As it turns out, the music mogul has decided to take his mentorship with the 2014 XXL Freshman on the road, revealing that he has officially tapped the Roc Nation signee as the lone opening act.

The tour is scheduled to kick off next month, on Oct. 27 in Anaheim, Calif. at the Honda Center, and will make stops in major cities throughout the U.S., including Las Vegas, Denver, Houston, New Orleans, Miami, Atlanta, Detroit, Boston, Chicago, and New York City, before concluding on Dec. 21 at the Forum in Los Angeles.

While Tidal members had exclusive first dibs on pre-sale tickets earlier this summer, the remaining tickets are currently available via LiveNation. VIP packages are also available at
