Jay-Z isn't planning on halting the promotional grind behind last September's 'Blueprint 3' any time soon. Hov just announced that he's heading over to the United Kingdom for some select summer dates with Drake and Mr. Hudson in one of the biggest matches of soft singing and hard rapping to come around in months. After years of building up a following in England, which culminated in the rapper's now-iconic headlining set at Glastonbury in 2008, Jay will be tearing down some large arenas this time around.

The first two shows take place on June 7 and 9 in Manchester and Birmingham before Hov takes his throne on July 4 as a headliner at London's popular Wireless festival. This will also be a huge look for Drake and Mr. Hudson -- both young in their respective careers and already sporting high profile features on 'Blueprint 3.' There's no word yet if there are any planned collaborations, but we can almost guarantee a rousing performance of the Hudson-assisted 'Young Forever.' We look forward to the YouTube very much.
