After selling out 26 shows across the country, Jay-Z will rest up and hit the road again in 2010. Unarguably the greatest rapper alive, Jay announced today -- via a statement from LiveNation -- that he'll kick off his 2010 trek in support of 'Blueprint 3' on Feb. 22 in Houston.

Since kicking off the first leg of the BP3 tour, Jay took the stage for the sold-out, televised "Answer the Call" benefit concert; performed at the MTV Video Music Awards; kicked off Jay Leno's new late night show; and, most recently, rocked Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, NY, alongside Alicia Keys at Game 2 of the World Series.
