The tour might be in support of a new album Nas confirmed he’s releasing this year, which would be his first LP since 2012’s “Life Is Good,” while it’ll be the latest in a string of shows Hill has lined up for this year. Hill released the song “Rebel/I Find It Hard To Say” exclusively to Tidal in 2016, which was a new version of a song from her 2002 album “MTV Unplugged 2.0.” She has not released a new album since then, while Nas has been tiding fans over with music from the recently cancelled Netflix series “The Get Down.“
