TRICKY is reported to have been banned from allowing posters promoting his new album ‘BLOWBACK’ to be shown in Hollywood.

According to a report in this morning’s Daily Star newspaper (July 3), the billboard posters, which show the rap star getting smoke blown into his mouth by a woman, have been banned because local authorities believe they may advocate drug use.

A spokesperson for Tricky was unavailable to confirm the reports to NME.COM this morning.

‘Blowback’ was released in the UK yesterday (July 2).
