Jay-Z will hit the road in support of his upcoming album, 'American Gangster,' beginning November 6 in Los Angeles, and wrapping on November 12 in Philadelphia.

The brief jaunt will be a stark contrast to the rapper's previous showcases -- which include gigs at New York's Madison Square Garden and London's Wembley Arena -- with each of the five performances taking place in relatively intimate venues.

'American Gangster' hits shelves on November 6.

11/6: Los Angeles, House of Blues
11/7: Chicago, House of Blues
11/9: Baltimore, Ramshead
11/11: New York, Hammerstein Ballroom
