  Rapper Mos Def has cancelled his upcoming U.S. tour. Concert promoters stated the cancellation was due to “legal issues”, but would not offer specifics. The outspoken musician and actor, now known as Yasiin Bey, left the U.S. in 2006 following legal entanglements with his ex-wife over child support. It is not known whether that incident is related to any alleged current legal problems. The Brooklyn born Bey has lived in Cape Town, South Africa since 2009. Bey has a history of criticizing the U.S. government in his music and personal activism. In 2013 he participated in a video where he voluntarily underwent the force-feeding procedures used on detainees in Guantánamo Bay. After the news broke on May 22nd, a friend of Bey’s named Abdi “Whosane” Hussein came forward the following day claiming that the tour cancellation was not due to any legal or immigration matters. Hussein told the South African paper Times Live that Bey had simply cancelled the tour in order to work on other commitments in South Africa. At this time Bey himself has not made any official statement about the cancellation. Keep Up With PopWrapped On The Web!
