Wu-Tang Clan, Nas set to co-headline ‘New York State of Mind’ tour

Notorious east coast group Wu-Tang Clan is hitting the road this summer and is bringing along the one and only Nas as a co-headliner.

Named after the iconic Illmatic track, the tour will hit cities throughout the United States starting in Missouri before ending in Los Angeles in October.

To announce the joint venture, Wu-Tang’s Instagram page shared a tribute video to the hip-hop’s roots and the city of New York. The camera flows through the streets of Queensbridge and over the water toward Staten Island while a montage of snippets from Wu-Tang and Nas’ endless classics plays over the footage. It’s a tribute to the city that birthed the genre with DJ Cool Herc‘s iconic block parties back in 1973. Without him, New York wouldn’t have generated so many classic acts that would later inspire so many others — and hip-hop as a whole.

News of the tour comes just after Wu Tang’s debut album Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) was inducted into the National Library of Congress. Nas just recently dropped his latest record Magic at the tail end of 2021 and continues his incredible surge nearly three decades into his career. His hot streak will continue with Wu-Tang Clan once their tour kicks off later this summer along with the announcement of Kings Disease 3 with Hit-Boy.
