The remaining dates of the tour are now available, and include two dates in Texas and additional ones in North Carolina and Maryland, all in April.
“This will be a major moment in music history,” 50 Cent said in an exclusive statement to MTV News. “Joining forces with Fall Out Boy, one of the most dynamic rock bands in the industry, will be an exciting and historic event for rock and hip-hop.”

It’s exciting to bring two different genres together and give the fans a new experience”
