Report: Yasiin Bey Barred From Re-Entering the U.S.


Yasiin Bey (aka Mos Def) has canceled his upcoming U.S. tour over immigration issues barring him from coming back to the 50 states, reports All Hip Hop.

A statement posted on one of the organizers’ website last week announced the scrapped shows. “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.”

Bey moved to South Africa last year. He recently spoke to Rolling Stone magazine about relocating. “I lived in Brooklyn 33 years of my life. I thought I’d be buried in that place. And around seven years ago, I was like, you know, ‘I gotta go, I gotta leave,'” he shared. “It’s very hard to leave. And I lived in a lot of places. Central America. North America. Europe for a while. And I came to Cape Town in 2009 and it just hit me. I was like, ‘Yeah.’ I know when a good vibe gets to you. And, you know, I thought about this place every day from when I left.”

In May 2013, Bey, whose birth name is Dante Terrell Smith, made the official move with the help of friend/manager Abdi Hussein (aka Whosane). “So, I came and I said I’m not leaving, I’m staying,” continued the 40-year-old lyricist. “And I’m not here just for like middle class comfort, you know. Sure, it’s a beautiful place, you got the ocean, the mountain, the botanical garden, the beautiful people, the history, the culture, the struggle and everything — maaan, let me tell you something, for a guy like me, who had five or six generations not just in America but in one town in America, to leave America, things gotta be not so good with America.”

It is unclear what kind of discrepancies are holding up his re-entry into the U.S.

EXCLUSIVE – Beyonce and Jay Z on the Verge of Divorce? WHAT YOU THINK




There are currently many speculating that Beyonce Knowles and Jay Z are on the verge of divorce. The rumors started in earnest after the fight between the superstar’s sister and her husband, but there have been some tell-tale signs throughout the years. However, the former Destiny’s Child star likes to make her life look like a fairytale, and divorce is not part of that.

Many will now already be familiar with the recent episode of Solange Knowles and Jay Z. The two were seen arguing on lift security footage leaked at the Met Gala after party. There have been a range of reasons given for the argument, including Jay Z’s lack of support for the younger Knowles sister and the way he treats his wife.

Beyonce has always tried to portray the look of the perfect family. Her private life is kept behind closed doors the majority of the time, unless it will work for her or her husband’s advantage. She also stays out of fights, partially due to her pacifistic preferences. That was the reason given when she refused to get involved in the argument in the elevator.

There are many speculating whether it was the younger Knowles sister over reacting at something at the Met Gala after party, or whether there was something else to it. According to people close to the family, there could be something more to it. In fact, Beyonce and Jay Z may be on the verge of a divorce.

The fight at the Met Gala was not the only sign that she is considering a way out. Just recently, she was photographed with her wedding ring tattoo removed or covered up. The tattoo was something the couple got to show that their love for each other was permanent. It seems like the songstress wants to cut all reminders of this of her life out as soon as possible, so she can make a clean break.

However, she will try everything to keep the family together. There is more than her reputation to think about, such as her daughter and their joint fortune. Together, the power couple is worth around $900 million. It would be tricky to split that up fairly, depending on the reasons for divorce.

Friends believe that divorce is the only option. Beyonce is fed up of the rumors about cheating, and seems to doubt her husband’s loyalty to her. According to sources, she did not want her husband anywhere near Rachel Roy, Jay Z’s former business partner’s ex-wife. Solange Knowles was just expressing her sister’s wishes, which Jay Z refused to accept and acknowledge.

There is trouble between them, and it is leading to that fairytale facade being destroyed. The best thing for the singer superstar would be to end her marriage and walk away. However, there are doubts that she wants it to end to keep the fairytale facade up.

Right now, the couple needs to do the best thing for the family, especially two-year-old Blue Ivy. That could mean that Beyonce and Jay Z really are on the verge of divorce.

Jay Z Opens 40/40 Club at Atlanta Airport

Jay Z brought his 40/40 Club to the world’s busiest airport on Wednesday, with the opening the swanky bar’s third location.

40/40 is open to ticketed passengers at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, according to spokeswoman Victoria Hong of Delaware North Companies, which partners with the rap mogul. The sports bar is in the airport’s Concourse D concessions area, Hong said.

“We want to have the same type of feel as the regular 40/40 Club,” Hong said. “It’s the airport version of the 40/40 Club.”

Airport concessions director Paul Brown said there are plans to create a VIP lounge area of the club, separate from the sports bar — at 1,500 square feet — on a different floor. The lounge is expected to open in the late fall, Brown said.

Brown called the lounge a “scaled down” replica of original club.

40/40 restaurant and lounges also are located in Manhattan and the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Jay Z also had clubs in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, New Jersey, but both closed.

40/40 is known at the New York locations for its live music and sports memorabilia and for attracting sports celebrities and music stars such as Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne.

The original Manhattan location opened in 2003, with Jay Z and business partner Juan Perez.

40/40 was named after the rare feat among ballplayers of hitting 40 homers and stealing 40 bases in one season.
