NEWS: Akon Hates Foreign Customs: “We Got Treated Harsh Cause We Had U.S. Passports”

[Editor's Note: In conjunction with XXL's annual love/hate issue, artists spoke on their personal love/hate moments of the year.]


Crossing international customs has never been a walk in the park, but it was apparently harder this past year- especially for americans. No stranger to international traveling, Akon, who spends plenty of time touring overseas, says foreign customs have increasingly been prejuidice to americans.

“What I hated this year…Of course when you travel, the traveling ain’t as comfortable as it used to because the politics played such a big role,” Kon told “The United States ain’t as loved as they used to be. In certain territories we got treated a little harsh because we had U.S. passports, but thanks to Obama we gon be able to fix that.”-Marvin Brandon
