Eminem, Ludacris, Papa Roach and the X-ecutioners will tour together this summer on a still-untitled outing. Dates have not been finalized, but a spokesperson for Papa Roach said the tour will begin in July.

Eminem and Papa Roach, who shared a bill on the Anger Management Tour in the fall of 2000, will both be promoting new high-profile releases.

Slim Shady’s The Eminem Show is due June 4, while Lovehatetragedy, Papa Roach’s second major-label album, is due June 18.

Ludacris, who recently finished a headlining club trek, will be supporting last year’s Word of Mouf, which features the hit single “Saturday (Oooh! Oooh!).”

The X-ecutioners are veteran DJs who are enjoying a resurgence in popularity thanks to their star-studded second album, Built From Scratch (see “X-ecutioners Let Turntables (And A-List MCs) Do The Talking”).

“It’s crazy right now,” the group’s Swift said earlier this month. “We’re really trying to prepare ourselves mentally for all the touring that’s coming our way. And a lot of people want to work with us and stuff like that. It goes to show that our music is reaching a lot of people.”
