Fresh off the release of his debut studio album, The Autobiography, Vic Mensa will hit the road this October as the opening act for JAY-Z’s upcoming North American tour, in support of Hov’s latest effort, 4:44.
The jaunt will kick off Oct. 27 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., before the pair performs back-to-back shows in Texas and Florida. Mensa and Hov will also journey to New Orleans, Atlanta, Detroit and of course New York, where the pair will perform at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The tour will travel across Canada for a few nights throughout the 32-city trek.
Mensa spoke with Billboard about his latest album, The Autobiography, revealing that before he started working on the album, he was in a dark headspace and created the album “to be understood.”
“I was leaving no stone unturned. I felt like I had to be unapologetically me. I had to be able to tell all my truths.” Tickets are available for purchase on tidal.com.
