Jay-Z has nailed down details for a seven-week world tour to spread awareness of the world's water crisis. The trek will begin Sept. 9 in Krakow, Poland, and run through Oct. 28 in Melbourne. It will be chronicled via the MTV documentary "Diary of Jay-Z: Water for Life," which will premiere Nov. 24 on the network.

"In the beginning, when I was going out on a world tour, I was going out to play music," the Def Jam president said earlier this month. "But I said to myself, I can't go to these places I've been and not go out and see the people that have been touched by my music for over 10 years. From that morphed, 'Well, I'm not just going to go over there and rap to them.' I'm going to help and see what I can do in these areas."

Before heading abroad, Jay-Z will also perform Sept. 7 at the Fashion Rocks concert at New York's Radio City Music Hall. Chatter remains high about his work on a new studio album, but it is unknown how close to completion the project is.
