Yasin Bey a.k.a Mos Def Cancels Tour Denied Entry Back in the U.S.

Mos Def

Yasin Bey or Mos Def as we all know him, has been forced to cancel his U.S. tour due to immigration issues. You see, Mos Def was recently denied entry back into the U.S. from South Africa where he has been living for a while now. It is presumed that when he moved to South Africa he gave up his U.S. citizenship and now they will not let him re-enter the U.S. A statement from the the Together Boston has been released:

‘We regret to inform you that due to immigration / legal issues Yasiin Bey is unable to enter back into the United States and his upcoming U.S. tour has been canceled, including May 15th, Together Boston’s show at The Wilbur Theatre. Individual ticket refunds for this show are available at point of sale.’

No word on whether the tour dates will be rescheduled.
