Jay-Z's College Tour

Jay-Z just dropped his new album The Blueprint 3 and it's filled with some pretty epic bangers. Being a man of the people and maintaining his reputation as being one of the hardest working men in hip-hop Jigga is doing a college tour. It comes as no surprise that Jay will be hitting the standard American colleges/universities but it was amazing to see that he will also be coming to Canada, and not just Toronto or Vancouver. Jay-Z will be hitting small town London Ontario, Ottawa and Montreal. To sweeten the deal, he's bringing long-time collaborators N.E.R.D. and up-and-coming D.C. rapper Wale. Both openers are brilliant artists and there is sure to be plenty of on-stage collaborations. What's more, Jay will also be bringing new comer J.Cole with him as well. B Full dates below.
