U.K. Rapper Skepta Denied Entry Into U.S.; Lollapalooza Gig Axed


(AllHipHop News) U.S. fans of U.K. Grime rapper Skepta are going to have to catch him at another date, because he has been denied entry into the United States.

Skepta was supposed to perform at Lollapalooza in Chicago this Friday, July 29th, but organizers took to Twitter to announce the plug had been pulled on his performance.

“Due to ongoing Visa issues, Skepta will not perform at Lollapalooza this year,” Lollapalooza organizers said via Twitter earlier this morning.

Skepta has yet to issue a statement on the cancellations, but it seems to be an ongoing problem.

In April, the Boy Better Know representative missed a high-profile performance at Coachella and several other dates in the US, after his Visa was denied.

Instead of Skepta, Chicago native and Savemoney co-founder Joey Purp will
perform on Perry’s Stage at 2:30 PM.
