LOS ANGELES, CA (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — After a stellar 2009, surpassing Elvis as the solo artist with the most # 1 albums, scoring a # 1 single with the anthemic “Empire State Of Mind” with Alicia Keys, performing during the World Series at Yankee Stadium, winning American Music Awards, sitting down with Oprah and staging a sold out 2009 tour, Jay-Z has added dates for his BP3 2010 North American tour. Jay-Z will make a hometown appearance on March 2nd when he returns to Madison Square Garden with a performance that is sure to galvanize New York City fans. He has also added a date at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville on March 5th. It was also announced that R&B singer Trey Songz will join Jay-Z and Grammy-nominated rapper Young Jeezy on the nationwide tour.

“Jay-Z is the greatest rapper alive. Anyone who was in attendance at his sold-out KeyArena concert Saturday night can attest to that fact. Hova, Young Hov, Jigga, Hovito, whatever you call him Shawn Carter is on top of the rap game and there were no signs of him stepping down any time soon during his career-spanning two-hour show.”
