Screen-Shot-2018-02-05-at-7.16.21-AM

Cardi B is hitting the road for her first major world tour later this year, and now we know when we can expect to see her at an arena near us. The “Bodak Yellow” rapper officially joins Bruno Mars for his 24K Magic World Tour, and the two are sharing the dates for the forthcoming journey.

The two superstars, who recently performed together at the 2018 Grammy Awards, will be hitting 23 dates in cities across North America. Cardi and Bruno are kicking things off in Denver, Co. for the first two dates on Sept. 7 and Sept. 8 before hitting up major cities such as Detroit, Boston, Toronto, Brooklyn, Austin, Philadelphia and more before wrapping things up with a four-night finale in Los Angeles, Calif. from Oct. 23 to Oct. 27.

Mars previously started his 24K Magic Tour back in March 2017, visiting cities all over the U.S., as well as the rest of the globe.

The Bronx native was recruited earlier this year to hop on “Uptown Funk” singer’s “Finesse (Remix),” which has made major waves on the radio following the release of its nostalgic music video.

Rapper Mos Def banned from entering US after exposing torture at Guantanamo Bay

Mos-Def-005-620x348

The world famous American born rapper, Mos Def (now known as Yasiin Bey), has today been forced to cancel his tour in the United States after immigration refused his entry to the country. This is due to a legal battle concerning the protest video he made to support detainees held at Guantanamo Bay. The Together music festival in Boston wrote the following on its website: “We regret to inform you that due to immigration / legal issues Yasiin Bey is unable to enter back into the United States and his upcoming U.S. tour has been canceled.” The reason he has not been allowed to enter the country is as follows: he made a personal stand against the force-feeding of 44 of 120 Guantanamo Bay detainees who were on hunger strike over the conditions of their incarceration and total absence of due process. In July 2013, Bey created a video filming the standard force feeding procedure applied to detainees, which was filmed and disseminated around the world by the Guardian newspaper. He consented to appear in the video and be force fed under the same condition that the said detainees do. The distressing scenes went on to become the eighth-most viewed story in the history of the Guardian’s website. Take a look at the video below: Mos Def currently lives in South Africa, despite remaining a prominent US rapper and appearing in TV shows such as Dexter. He revealed his reasons for moving to Cape Town in a recent interview. “I lived in Brooklyn 33 years of my life. I thought I’d be buried in that place. And around seven years ago, I was like, you know, ‘I gotta go, I gotta leave.’ It’s very hard to leave. And I lived in a lot of places. Central America. North America. Europe for a while. And I came to Cape Town in 2009 and it just hit me. I was like, ‘Yeah.’ I know when a good vibe gets to you. And, you know, I thought about this place every day from when I left. “I’m not here just for like middle class comfort, you know. Sure, it’s a beautiful place, you got the ocean, the mountain, the botanical garden, the beautiful people, the history, the culture, the struggle and everything — maaan, let me tell you something, for a guy like me, who had five or six generations not just in America but in one town in America, to leave America, things gotta be not so good with America.”
