Nas has jumped on the board the traveling Rock the Bells festival this summer, where he will share the stage with the Wu-Tang Clan, Rage Against The Machine and others.

Nas will co-headline the majority of the trek along with the re-united Clan, who have signed on for the entire festival. As previously reported, the newly reformed Rage is only playing at three of the outdoor festival's 18 dates: July 28 at Randall's Island in New York, Aug. 11 at the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, Calif., and Aug. 18 at the McCovey Cove Parking Lot in San Francisco.

Tickets for these performances go on sale this Saturday (March 31). It has not yet been confirmed whether Nas will appear at those three, though he is committed to the other 15 dates.

Cypress Hill, the Roots, Public Enemy, Sage Francis, Mos Def, APMD, Jedi Mind Tricks and Immortal Technique are also on board for all dates of the fest, while MF Doom, FELT, Hieroglyphics, Living Legends, Blackalicious, the Coup, Murs, Brother Ali, Cage, Mr. Lif, Grouch & Eligh, Hangar 18, Bluepring and Lucky I AM will perform at only some shows.

Nas kicks off his own headlining tour next Monday (April 2) at the House of Blues in Cleveland.
