Its still unclear if Yasiin Bey (formerly Known as Mos Def) is having trouble getting back into the states, but what is clear is he hasn’t spoke to fellow Black Star member Talib Kweli.

“I haven’t spoken on Yasiin cuz it seemed obvious to me that these rumors are unsubstantiated lies. But y’all believe blogs so I must,” said longtime collaborator Kweli via Twitter. “Think about you’ve read about Yasiin. Does it make sense? No it doesn’t. Do you own research if you that concerned. Stop believing blogs. No need to get up in arms. Yasiin is, in the words of Dave Chappelle, chillin out in South Africa #mandelavoice."

According to reports Bey was denied re-entry into the United States after failing to fulfill a performance agreement, despite claims from Times Live that the rumors are false.
