Just over two months after he cancelled his Australian tour rumoured to be because he was banned from entering the country, US rapper Tyler, The Creator has written a new song which he released yesterday, entitled Fuck It, in which he slams Australia's visa laws. 

In the song, the hip hop artist raps, "Tell Australia I'm sneaking in with a mic in my damn hand, instead of the vegetables that I packed in my backpack."

He goes on to reference fellow rapper Eminem, real name Marshall Mathers, who had similar issues surrounding his 2001 tour, though he was eventually allowed entry into the country. 

"When Marshall had this problem what the fuck was they telling him? Is it cause of status or his melanin lacks black?" Tyler raps.

Perhaps the most controversial lyrics from the song regarding his alleged ban from the country are, "Huh? I think people love to be mad. How can I be misogynist? I love titties and ass. How can I be homophobic when my boyfriend's a fag?"

Tyler cancelled his Cherry Bomb tour of Australia in early August and announced that he "would much rather come to Australia when it isn't surrounded in controversy."

Weeks earlier, the 24-year-old musician tweeted that he was banned from entering the country, though promoters denied that his claims were accurate. 

Activist group Collective Shout supported the decision to ban Tyler from Australia due to his "sexually violent lyrics" and "objectification of women".

Listen to the new song below. 

Meanwhile, US R&B artist Chris Brown may also be forced to cancel his December tour of the country, after he was banned due to his violent past, specifically his 2009 assault of his then-girlfriend Rihanna.

Brown has just over two weeks to contest the decision.
