Co-promoter Robin Fernando said it was “due to his recent arrest(s) on both firearms and drug charges.” The 28-year-old rapper was arrested at an Atlanta airport in October after a loaded handgun was found in his luggage.

All tickets for the May shows will be refunded, but Fernando hinted at a reschedule.

Two of the six shows were in New Zealand where the rapper had no problem, but these were axed for logistical reasons.
