The rapper had cancelled his Reading & Leeds Festival performances earlier this week, citing "circumstances", which he's now detailed via social media.
The American star, who is in the middle of a solo tour having founded the hip-hop collective Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All (often simply referred to as Odd Future), says he is not allowed to enter the UK for “three to five years” because of “lyrics written in 2009”, writing on Twitter on Wednesday night (August 26th).
