Rapper Yg has cancelled his upcoming Australian tour dates.

The Like This hitmaker was scheduled to perform at dance festival Listen Out 2014 alongside fellow rapper Schoolboy Q in Sydney later this month (Sep14), but has dropped out due to unknown reasons and axed his other dates in the country.

A statement on Listen Out's Facebook.com page reads, "Unfortunately Yg has cancelled his Australian tour, so he won't be appearing at Listen Out. "

Yg, real name Keenon Daequan Ray Jackson, recently pulled out of a show in Spokane, Washington due to work commitments, but he did make the stage to perform at Jay Z's Made in America Festival in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Sunday (31Aug14).
