The black metal band came under fire when an image surfaced of the band's frontman with a swastika painted across his chest.
Talib Kweli has pulled out of his upcoming tour stop at Kansas City's Riot Room after the venue booked controversial black metal band TAAKE, amid allegations of racism and discrimination.
Kweli was scheduled to perform at The Riot Room on Wednesday in support of his latest album Radio Silence but was informed by fans that the venue was hosting TAAKE at the end of March. When a Twitter user called out Kweli after the rapper decided to cancel his show, Kweli simply responded, "If you allow a nazi band to grace your stage you support Nazis. You must work for the Riot Room."
The Black Star rapper has released a statement further explaining his decision of pull out of the show.
