Big Boi has announced a new round of U.S. tour dates. The third leg of his ongoing "Daddy Fat Saxxx" jaunt launches May 17th in St. Louis, Missouri and concludes June 8th in his hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. Tickets are currently on sale via the rapper's website.

The 16-date trek promotes the former Outkast emcee's third solo LP, last year's Boomiverse. The all-star album features guest spots from Killer Mike, Snoop Dogg, Maroon 5's Adam Levine, Jeezy, Gucci Mane, Curren$y and Sleepy Brown, among others. Big Boi has been touring behind Boomiverse since last spring.

In June, the rapper spoke to Rolling Stone about his "graduation record," his love of touring and his position in the music industry. "I have trophy cases full of Grammys, American Music Awards. It's not about that no more," he said. "My favorite part about making music is touring. When I make an album, I tour for two years. So it's all about going and seeing the people and watching them sing songs that you recorded years ago. The people love it. They can feel that shit. And as long as people keep digging it, I'm gonna be all I can be. It's a gift, and I don't take it lightly."
