Today, Wu-Tang Clan announced that its surviving members will join Queens rapper Nas for a co-headlining "NY State of Mind" tour coming to Tampa in September.

Tickets to see Nas with Wu-Tang Clan play Tampa's MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre on Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 8 p.m. go on sale Tuesday, April 26 at 10 a.m.

Nas, who headlined Tampa's Gasparilla Music Festival last October, is in the midst of a career resurgence and just released his 13th studio album, Kings Disease II, a follow up to 2020's King's Disease, which earned the 48-year-old his first Grammy for Best Rap Album at the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards.

Wu-Tang for its part is 18 years removed from the death of founding member Ol' Dirty Bastard and recently saw its classic debut album Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) archived in Washington D.C.'s Library of Congress.
