Lil Wayne hit the ground running once he was released. He did music with Birdman, Dj. Khaled and so many others to debut his return. Now comes word that he is about to embark on another major tour to hit his awaiting fans.

Lil Wayne has announced the “I Am Music” tour, which will lead up to the release of his anticipated Carter IV album. The New Orleans rapper will travel across the United States with Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross and Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker. There are no New York City dates on the tour, which the rapper has said is in protest of his incarceration in Rikers Island on gun charges. The dates that are close to home are below.

4/14: New Orleans, La., New Orleans Arena

4/15: Dallas, Texas, American Airlines Arena

4/16: Houston, Texas, Toyota Center
