The US hip-hop star, whose real name is Yasiin Bey, was arrested in January after trying to leave South Africa on a “world passport”, which the country does not recognise as a legal travel document. Bey, who has lived in Cape Town since 2013, will be declared an undesirable person for his actions and will not be granted re-entry to South Africa, the home affairs department said. “[He] has unreservedly apologised to the government of South Africa. The department is satisfied with the apology [and] will withdraw the charges against him,” it said in a statement.

The world passport is a document issued by the World Service Authority, a non-profit organisation set up in the US after the second world war to advocate for world citizenship.

Directed by Canadian-Iraqi MC Narcy (who’s also featured on the track alongside Yasiin) the video follows him and Yasiin as they rap through the desert and other parts of Cape Town, South Africa, with the two ultimately trying to slip through the borders of their enemies, the Alie Nation (or “alienation”). The video seems to provide a commentary on Yasiin’s ongoing immigration problems, as he and Narcy venture through a place where “all the things of the earth and in the sky have energy to be exploited, even themselves, mining themselves into souls, sold,” as an interlude of narration tells us. In a press release for the video A Tribe Called Red elaborates on this, saying: “The Halluci Nation has no barriers, it sees no borders and their operatives are everywhere. Check out the video below.

Le trio ottavien de producteurs/DJs a été salué partout à travers le monde et récompensé d’un prix JUNO pour son mélange créatif d’EDM et d’éléments de musique des Premières nations, et sur ce troisième album, ils ont décidé de passer au niveau supérieur.
