Los Angeles: Rapper Joey Badass has cancelled a couple of shows in Europe following his cousin's death two days back.

Badass, 19, took to Twitter to announce the cancellation and added he needs time to recover from his cousin's loss, reported Aceshowbiz.

"To my EUROPE fans: I have to cancel the rest of this tour... My cuz just passed and I can't find the strength... I'm sincerely sorry. Appreciate life and your loved ones at all times... Life can take a turn at any minute... #ripjuniorbfly," he wrote on his Twitter page.
