Kanye West has announced that he'll be going on tour this fall, his first solo tour in five years. West will be joined by perhaps the only man in hip-hop whose ego can rival his own, acerbic trash-talker Kendrick Lamar.

The Yeezus Tour starts in Seattle on Oct. 19, stopping at 23 major American and Canadian cities through December.


Jay Z, perhaps feeling a little left out of the club, has announced the North American leg of his Magna Carta World Tour, which will hit 34 stops starting in St. Paul, Minn. on Nov. 30. It will end Jan. 31 in State College, Pa.

Tickets for Hov's tour go on sale Thursday, Sept. 12, while tickets for West's tour go on sale Friday, Sept. 13.
