While on the road, the multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning artist will offer up new material from his highly-anticipated release The Renaissance- due early 2008 via Universal Motown. Featuring a unique mix of samples and a live band, the album is the latest chapter in one of the most storied careers in urban music.
