Rapper Busta Rhymes has been forced to scrap a concert in London next month after U.K. immigration officials rejected his application for a work visa.
The I Know What You Want star was due to headline a concert at the city’s Coronet venue on 7 December, but the show has now been cancelled.

Promoters are hoping to reschedule the gig for next spring, providing Rhymes can resolve his visa problems, reports AllHipHop.com.

It’s not the first time the rapper has encountered immigration issues – British officials refused him entry in 2008 due to his legal troubles, stemming from two assault cases, which have since been settled.
