Now that Jay-Z and 50 Cent have all their logistical bases covered, they'll be ready to hit the road together in less than two months.
On Thursday Def Jam released the tour dates for their Rock the Mic Tour, which will kick off on June 25 at Hartford, Connecticut's ctnow.com Meadows Music Centre (see "50 Cent And Jay-Z To 'Rock The Mic' ").
The tour, which will include different lineups of opening acts such as Missy Elliott, Busta Rhymes, Fabolous, Sean Paul, Snoop Dogg and Lil' Mo, ends August 5 at the Hi-Fi Buys Amphitheatre in Atlanta.
In the meantime, 50 will continue on his own road show. The Queens rhymesmith is hitting up theaters with the Clipse until the middle of this month, and then he'll head overseas with Eminem for a few dates before he and Hova kick things off.
