The rapper was arrested last week for allegedly travelling with a fraudulent passport. He opened up about his detainment in a message posted on Kanye West’s website. He freestyles Kanye West’s No More Parties in LA and change the LA to SA.

He further raps “I’ve committed no crime/ Why’s the state wasting my time/ They must be out of their minds,” Bey raps, later adding, “This is not an expression of fear/ This is just to make things clear/ My intentions are pure in coming here.”
