Erykah Badu and Yasiin Bey (formerly known as Mos Def) have announced that they’re embarking on a 25-city tour of the United States.

The tour, which kicks off on June 11, is called the Unfollow Me tour and will commence at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, TX. It will conclude on July 23 at the American Airlines Center in San Antonio, TX.



Pre-sales begin on April 20 through Ticketmaster.

Recently, Madlib teased an upcoming project with the “Tyrone” R&B songstress.

The legendary producer appeared on Sway in the Morning on March 27 alongside Talib Kweli to promote their new album Liberation 2. During the conversation, Madlib said he’s putting the finishing touches on the long-lost Maclib project and has recently begun work on a full-length effort with Ms. Badu.



“Right now, I’m finishing up the Mac Miller album, Planet Asia album, Erykah Badu album, different stuff,” he said.

He later added: “[Erykah and I] just started on an album … We have a lot of unreleased stuff.”

For his part, Yasiin Bey has made headlines for his clever repurposing of Kanye West‘s controversial “White Lives Matter” shirt.

Last October, the “Umi Says” rapper shared a collaborative Instagram post with Khalifi in which Bey first appears with his back turned to the camera. Printed on the back of his long-sleeved shirt is Ye’s now infamous reimagining of the Black Lives Matter slogan in white with the letter “v” appearing in Black, thus spelling “White Lies Matter.”

The photo set includes Bey — who’s worked with Kanye on numerous songs and was previously signed to his G.O.O.D. Music label — modeling the back of the shirt in white before showing off the front of the shirt, which bears a photo of Georg Hegel with his eyes covered by a black bar.



The German philosopher is best known for having defined the Hegelian Dialectic, the philosophy that the contradiction between a concept and its antithesis (or opposite concept) can be resolved by a higher level of truth.
