Nas and Lauryn Hill have announced they will be hitting the road together this fall, this time for the Powernomics tour. Powernomics: The National Plan to Empower Black America, is a non-fiction guide for African American economic prosperity, written by Dr. Clause Anderson and published by PowerNomics Corporation of America.
The Hip Hop legends are borrowing the name of Anderson’s book for a good reason. Nas, a venture capitalist with his Queensbridge Venture Partners, will apply some of the proceeds from this tour to his business portfolio. L-Boogie, a long time advocate of Black progress, has shown that she is focused on emphasizing collective economics alongside her “If I Ruled the World” collaborator… imagine that.
The tour kicked off in early September and runs through late October. Opening acts include Jamaican reggae sensation Chronixx, comedian Hannibal Burris, and others for select dates. For a full tour schedule visit here.
