Nas Announces Intimate "Experience" Shows

(swiped from Pitchfork Media)

After months of build-up-- controversial name followed by controversial lack of name and cover art followed by controversy-courting video-- Nas' new untitled studio album is now in stores via Def Jam/Jones Experience.

The New York rapper's imprint isn't the only Jones Experience he has planned, though. This weekend, Nas will launch "The Jones Experience" tour in support of the album. The tour consists of smaller club shows in between Nas' appearances on the traveling Rock the Bells festival. Opening for Nas on the tour will be Talib Kweli, Jay Electronica, and DJ Green Lantern.
