Beyoncé and Jay Z are possibly coming to a city near you, reportedly joining together for a summer tour. According to Page Six, the power couple will co-headline a 20-date stadium tour beginning this June, including a 4th of July show in New York City.

The news comes just weeks after Beyoncé wrapped up her 132-date “Mrs. Carter Show World Tour,” which spawned four continents (Europe, North America, South America, and Australia). Back in January, Jay Z finished his 52-date “Magna Carta World Tour” which hit stadiums across North America and Europe.

UPDATE: The L.A. Times reports “The Mr. and Mrs. Carter Tour” will begin June 13 in Atlanta, wrapping up in San Francisco on August 6. The Los Angeles stop has a tentative date of August 3 at the Rose Bowl, two days before Eminem and Rihanna’s “The Monster” tour stops in Pasadena for back-to-back nights. The European leg will follow in the fall, including multiple shows in Paris, France.

jake one j cole 3 wishes.jpg

Jake One had a hell of a year in 2013, knocking out joints for everyone from Drake and Wale to Chance The Rapper and J. Cole. After walking us through the making of Drizzy’s “Furthest Thing” in last month’s “Behind the Beat,” the sorely underrated beat conductor once again welcomes us into his lair to break down “3 Wishes,” a track he produced on J. Cole’s Truly Yours 2 EP. Aside from picking apart the organs, drums and bassline, Jake tells us that the song was actually intended for Born Sinner, but Cole couldn’t find a place for it on the album. Hell, I would have paid for it anyway.
