The 21-date tour kicks off Tuesday, July 22 in Montreal and wraps up Labor Day weekend in Minneapolis.

Rocky Napoli wishes Nas could have stuck to his guns and called his album the N word. Still, Rocky Napoli will be at this show.

Wait, I thought "Nigger" was the title of his previous album. You mean that album still hasn't been released?

Ha, from the looks of that ALIFE crowd, maybe he should've tried naming his new album "Honkey instead!
