    I hope he is permitted by Immigration, base on the law for people not from the territory visiting with criminal record.

    This the problem with our people and the things we tend to promote and support,
    This man may be a real good singer, but he was convicted of smuggling cocaine, not self defense or even standing up for some principled point, or politics. The man is a criminal and that is what you all are promoting.

    What is positive about this , a man who said that he wants to rule his destiney, man's destiney is in God he is who hold It, rule and can't even rule not going to jail .the Lord allow him to be lock up for him to change his ways and if he doesn't it will be worse for him .this man has lead so many young person's astray,smoking doing all kind of wrong , many died with is music. Most person are drawn/program to wrongs than what is right,I have nothing against the man personally but what he is promoting what is using him , most will say conscious music but words are spirit so people will be going singing yea raising hands worshipping the spirit of death he'll and the grave and don't even know it .have no rights coming here at all or any place , he to go and reflects on were he when wrong repent and get back in church were he was ..
