‘The saga continues:’ Wu-Tang and Nas tour to stop in Jacksonville

September 23 at Daily's Place.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Hip-hop heads rejoice because heavy hitters Wu-Tang Clan and Nas have announced their State of Mind Tour 2023 and Jacksonville is on the list.


The 32-date global tour will make a stop at Daily’s Place on Sat., Sept. 23 at 8:00 p.m. Tickets will go on sale Fri., Mar. 3 beginning at 9 a.m.

Many consider both to be pioneers of 1990s hip-hop.

Wu-Tang Clan is comprised of members, RZA, GZA, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, U-God, Masta Killa, Inspectah Deck, Cappadonna, and the deceased Ol’ Dirty Bastard (ODB). Led by the production of RZA, samples from martial arts films have thematically appeared throughout the group’s music. Sample tracks from artists like Rick James, James Brown and Syl Johnson are just some of the sounds used in their music.

NAS first reached an international audience when his track “Halftime” was tapped by producer MC Serch as the opening cut on 1992′s Zebrahead movie. His first full-length album, Illmatic, was released in 1994 and reached platinum certification in 2001. The album is considered by writers and music critics to be one of the best hip-hop albums ever produced. The list of other album releases, accomplishments and awards elevates Nas to legendary status.

The 2023 tour comes on the heels of the sold out 2022 N.Y. State of Mind Tour run that hit 25-plus cities last year, including an iconic show at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angles.

The tour was also recently nominated for Pollstat’s 2022 Hip Hop Tour of the Year.
