Upcoming Return of the Cool rapper Nick Grant hit Instagram with a major announcement.

After tearing up the TIDAL Rising stage at the 2017 Budweiser Made In America Festival last weekend, Nick has joined legends Nas and Lauryn Hill on their PowerNomics tour, alongside coveted comedian Dave Chappelle. Nick told CASSIUS of the extraordinary opportunity: “I’m very, very excited. These people are like my superheroes,” adding “I grew up on them—my mother used to play [them] on the way to school. [They’ve been] a very big part of my life—and not just the soundtrack to my childhood, but the soundtrack to my life, in general. Even until this day.”

Kicking off last week in Chicago, the PowerNomics tour is slated to hit 16 more cities spanning Canada and the United States. See the updated tour dates and cop your tickets here.
