He had to cancel his tour...
The former Mos Def was forced to cancel his upcoming US tour after being denied entry into the country. Def, who now goes by Yasiin Bey, was set to tour the country that he moved away from in favor of South Africa in 2009 but a posting on the Together Music Festival website announced that he has been forced to cancel it as he can't enter the country.
The posting reads, "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 tour has been cancelled."
No further information was available as to the specific issues.
