Juvenile is celebrating the milestone anniversary of his smash hit by announcing a brand new tour.

On Tuesday, June 11, the Louisiana native announced the dates for his "Back That Azz Up 25th Anniversary Tour." The tour will kick off July 7 at the Donna Color Explosion event following the Cash Money Reunion at Essence Fest in New Orleans. From there, Juvie and his 400 Degreez Band will travel to over 60 cities around the U.S. including some areas that have yet to be announced. His tour will wrap up in his hometown on New Year's Eve.

Juvenile teased the tour for the first time in a video he posted to his Instagram timeline. In honor of the hit record's 25th anniversary, Mayor LaToya Cantrell officially named June 11 "Back That Azz Up Day" in the city of New Orleans. Juvie announced the plans for the tour in his caption.

"Happy Back That Azz Up Day !!! Say it back or better yet back it up as your civic duty !!" he wrote. "Celebrating with a Back That Azz Up 25th anniversary tour starting with Donna Color Explosion on 7/7 touring entire USA & Canada ending at Saenger on 12/31."

The tour was announced on the 25th anniversary of his song "Back That Azz Up" featuring Lil Wayne and Mannie Fresh. The song brought New Orleans' bounce scene to mainstream audiences after it dropped as the second single off his third studio album 400 Degreez in 1998. It became Juvenile's biggest hit until he released "Slow Motion" in 2004.

Tickets for the tour are set to go on sale this Friday, June 14 at 10 a.m. Check out the full list of dates and watch a breakdown of how the song was made via Genius below.
