Looks like Yasiin Bey, better known as, Brooklyn lyricist Mos def, is having some difficulties coming home. Bey has been forced to cancel his U.S. tour along with his performance in the Together Boston Music Festival due to “immigration/legal issues”.

Together Boston released this statement on their official website, accompanied by a sad face to conclude the message:

“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.”

In January, Bey was last reported in Africa working on the The Time Is Always Now campaign, a series of live-stream events inspired to honor famous boxer Muhammad Ali.

Ain’t that a B**ch!
