I know what you’re thinking. “But isn’t he from Brooklyn?” Well days ago, Boston’s Together Music Festival posted on their site that Yasiin Bey has completely scrapped his tour because he was unable to enter America.

Although he currently lives in South Africa and is a permanent resident there, we all know the rapper was born in Brooklyn, so something isn’t quite adding up here:

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.
