Big Boi has had to cancel the best part of his May/June US tour, having had an operation to fix a knee-cap he damaged on stage earlier this week.

“God bless Atlanta Sports Medicine for a successful knee surgery fixed my torn Patella”, said the Outkast MC via Tumblr, adding a photo of him and his bandaged limb in a wheelchair.

Meanwhile rapper Killer Mike, who was meant to be joining him on the remainder of the ironically-titled ‘Shoes For Running’ tour, later tweeted that Big Boi was to take six weeks R&R to heal, adding that all cancelled dates will be “moved to September”.
