Jay Z doesn’t slow down -- at all.

The hip-hop magnate, who has packed stadiums across the U.S. on a summer tour with Justin Timberlake, is going to make another cross through North America on his own.

After a run in Europe, Jay will launch a trek through North American on Nov. 30 in St. Paul, Minn.

TIMELINE: Summer's must see concerts

The 34-date tour will make two Southland stops. He will play Honda Center in Anaheim on Dec. 6 and Staples Center on Dec. 9. Tickets will go on sale Sept. 12.

Jay is touring in support of his latest effort, “Magna Carta Holy Grail.”

The album arrived to instant platinum status thanks to a multimillion-dollar deal with Samsung that gave away a million copies to smartphone users. Last week, the disc went certified double platinum. 

Maybe Jay will run into his old pal and former tour mate, Kanye West, who also announced his own North American tour on Friday.
