CNN reported that reggae artist Chronixx and comedian Hannibal Buress will be opening acts for select dates.

Nas, whose full name is Nasir Jones, posted a happy birthday message to Hill Thursday on Instagram. The two previously collaborated on his 1996 hit “If I Ruled the World.”

Whether Nas or Hill will perform first is not clear, but Hill is notorious for showing up late to shows, at times not going on until hours after the listed start time.

In 2016, the two performed at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco.

Tickets for the tour go on sale June 2.
