JPEGMAFIA has announced a big run of dates behind his great recent album Veteran. "The Reverse Christopher Columbus Tour" will take the rapper across North America and Europe this summer and fall. "I’m going around the world regentrifying every city, one by one," JPEGMAFIA wrote on Instagram, adding that the tour is named after Columbus "Cuz that nigga got lost."

The tour dates also came with a new song, a Backstreet Boys "cover" called "Millennium Freestyle," which was recorded during the sessions that produced Veteran. As the song's great cover art alludes, "Millennium" interpolates a track by the Backstreet Boys, "I Want It That Way," but the first half also includes the melody from "My Boo" by Ghost Town DJs. Listen below and check out JPEGMAFIA's tour dates below. Ticket pre-sale starts July 11 on JPEGMAFIA's website.
