United States Revokes Several Jamaican Dancehall Reggae Artists' Visas

At least five dancehall reggae artists will no longer be allowed to enter the United States, as their visas have been revoked, according to a document obtained by the Jamaica Star.

The document read:
"The Embassy of the United States in Kingston, Jamaica, is in the process of revoking the visas of the following citizens of Jamaica. The people mentioned here currently hold a US visa that we have not yet been able to physically cancel. Do not allow these passengers to board any flights bound for the United States in reliance on this visa."
Those artists on the do not fly list are: Beenie Man, Ricky Trooper, Aidonia, Mavado and Bounty Killer.

A couple of those artists have been criticized by the LGBT community for their "murder music", which promotes violence against gays.

Poor, Buju. His visa will most certainly be canceled, too, once he gets out of prison.
