Mos Def (Yasiin Bey) Unable To Re-Enter America Due To “Immigration Issues”

(AllHipHop News) Dante Terrell Smith may want America to see him as Yasiin Bey but we may not see him at all for a long time. According to representatives at Boston music festival Together Boston, Mos Def has cancelled his U.S. tour due to being banned from the country.

The music festival, Together Boston sent out a message stating that Mos Def would not be participating in this year’s event and was canceling his upcoming U.S. tour. According to the statement on the festival’s official website, Mos Def is unable to re-enter the United States of America due to “immigration/legal issues”:

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.

Last July, Mos Def participated in European news outlet The Guardian‘s simulated force feeding of food similar to what is alleged to occur in Guantanamo Bey.
