American rapper and record producer from California, Tyler the Creator has been banned from the UK. Tyler rose to prominence as the leader and co-founder of the alternative hip hop collective Odd Future, and has rapped on and produced songs for nearly every Odd Future release.

When Tyler, the Creator began cancelling the United Kingdom shows on his European tour, it was later revealed that the Cherry Bomb rapper is banned from the country. Now the former Odd Future frontman has taken to his Twitter feed to speak on why he is not allowed there.

According to The Phuckery: "Tyler has been banned from entering the UK for somewhere between 3 to 5 years per a letter from the secretary of state for the home department of the United Kingdom. the letter specifically cites lyrics he wrote 6-7 years ago for his albums bastard and goblin – the type of lyrics he hasn’t written since… highlights from the letter include that his work “encourages violence and intolerance of homosexuality” and “fosters hatred with views thats seek to provoke others to terrorist acts..” i grew up on NWA, eminem and rage against the machine, so its hard to me to fully wrap my head this thought process and its implications."

This isn’t the first time the west coast native had to cancel tour dates because of his lyrics. He recently cancelled his Austrailan tour after a feminist group attempted to get his visa banned.

Even though he cannot step foot in the UK for the next three to five years, Tyler is heading out on tour with A$AP Rocky in October.
