Another year, another anniversary to celebrate. After celebrating the 20th year since its classic LP The Infamous with a double album and tour, today Mobb Deep announces a 38-date U.S. outing to celebrate two decades of its third album, 1996's Hell On Earth. The first date will be in Philadelphia Mar. 5, and the duo will welcome Smif-N-Wessun and the Dogg Pound on selected dates.

The outing will include three shows at SXSW in Austin, Tex. in March, as well as five events -- one apiece in Los Angeles, Miami and Chicago and two in New York -- with the Scratch DJ Academy, which will include VIP packages offering demonstrations in making beats, the art of MC'ing and DJ'ing from Mobb Deep's Havoc and Prodigy as well as longtime touring DJ and producer Ski Beatz. The tour will wrap up in Cambridge, Mass. April 23.

As with The Infamous' milestone, Mobb Deep are also planning on putting out an album of previously-unreleased tracks from the recording sessions for Hell On Earth, which came out Nov. 19, 1996 on Loud/RCA and boasted features from Nas, Method Man, Raekwon and frequent collaborator Big Noyd, among others. And even though this tour is set to celebrate Hell On Earth, Mobb Deep's two shows in New York with the Scratch Academy will feature the duo performing The Infamous in its entirety at the Blue Note with a live band, which is set to be recorded for a live release later in the year.
