Nas and Lauryn Hill aim to rule (and help) the world again with their 17 date tour, which starts tonight in Chicago.
The PowerNomics tour is inspired by Dr. Claud Anderson’s book, PowerNomics, which discusses economic enfranchisement for the African-American community in America. Proceeds and donations from the tour will go to groups focusing on education, health, agriculture, technology, and community-based businesses.
