Grime's leading artist can't seem to get back in the United States

For those in the United States who have been eager to see Skepta perform, you will have to wait even longer to witness his artistry as the Grime MC is having more visa issues. 

The result of the most recent visa denial has forced Lollapalooza to replace Skepta with Joey Purp, which was announced via the festival's Twitter.

Back in April Skepta had to cancel his gig at Coachella, saying via Twitter, "U.S visa has been denied and I am not allowed in America right now." When Skepta will be allowed back in the states remains to be seen, but the last time he and his crew were here he destroyed SXSW and we have been patiently awaiting his return ever since.

Skepta dropped his critically acclaimed album, Konnichiwa, back in May, listen here.
