(GEMS RADIO)—Rakim has been getting a bit of hate for postponing his European tour again.

He states that there has been too many scheduling conflicts.

“I’m unfortunately postponing the planned European concerts scheduled in June 2023,” he began. “As the world celebrates the 50th anniversary of Hip Hop, I’ve been blessed with so many calls and invitations to represent the pioneers of this genre at innumerable once-in-a-generation events and awards.”

“These blessings have unfortunately created so many calendar conflicts that it’s simply not possible to travel internationally and still put on the undistracted shows Europe deserves after so many years.”

He continued: “Stick with me if you can. Our production partners in the UK, Scandinavia, and the Netherlands have already been able to reschedule and we expect the rest of the shows to have new dates announced shortly. All tickets shall remain valid or be available for a refund. Please check with your local venue for more information.”

Many have taken to social media to express their anger. “Not good Ra. This is the 3rd time you reschedule. Postponing it for a few months would be alright but pushing it back an entire year is not good,” wrote one commenter.

While on the flip side, there were just as many positive comments too. “I can’t believe all the disrespectful comments. When life gets hectic it’s best to be honest with yourself and it would not of been an easy decision. Big respect to the R. I’ve been a fan for 2 decades now so I can wait another year to see the man. Everyone needs to fucking chill! Big love R from the UK,” wrote the fan.
