Gang Starr is also a part of the tour.

Last year came the inaugural Gods of Rap tour that featured De La Soul, Wu-Tang Clan, and Public Enemy. Now, DJ Premier has confirmed that the tour is returning this year.

The Gods of Rap II tour will feature a new lineup: Nas, DMX, The Lox, and Gang Starr. Premier had previously served as the host for the tour, but now that role will be handled by Just Blaze.

Unfortunately, the shows announced so far are only taking place in the UK, with the rap groups hitting Manchester, London, and Birmingham in late April. It’s unknown if the tour will then expand to include European dates like the first tour. Tickets will be available to purchase on Januar 31 here.

In related news, Premier previously discussed how he asked Nas, Yasiin Bey, Kendrick Lamar and Drake to be on last year’s Gang Starr album, One of the Best Yet.

“Nas was supposed to get on it, but it wasn’t clashing right at the time,” Premier said. :Honestly, Nas was like, ‘I’m just not in writing [mode]; I just have no writing in me right now. And if I’ma do it, I gotta kill it, ’cause I gotta sound as good as Guru. I just have no writing feels right now, so I just don’t wanna half-ass it.’ And I respected that.”
