Georgetown University canceled a scheduled concert by rapper Fabolous, citing his history of domestic violence.

Colleges and universities have begun cracking down on rappers performing on campuses after the University of Kansas apologized for an offensive concert by rapper Snoop Dogg last week.

Washington, D.C. student activists protested the upcoming concert by the 41-year-old Brooklyn rapper at the school's Hoya Madness event.

On Oct. 6 Georgetown's athletic department announced that Fabolous was booked to perform at an upcoming concert. But students activists launched a petition in protest.

The students cited the rapper's history of domestic violence against his baby mama, Emily B. Fabolous, real name John David Jackson, was videotaped harassing Emily and shouting obscenities at her father last year.

"We strongly urge Georgetown to reconsider the message it sends students in booking an act who has a history of domestic violence. Georgetown Athletics, cancel Fabolous' performance to condemn his past behavior and maintain the Hoya family as a welcoming and safe space for all."

Fabolous pleaded guilty to harassment but the charge was eventually dropped on the condition that he enter a pretrial intervention program. He wasn't required to take an anger management course.

The school's athletic department formally disinvited Fabolous from performing on campus on Oct. 8.

Travis Scott is apparently still depressed after his emotional loss at the 61st annual Grammy Awards broadcast on Sunday in Los Angeles. The rapper was scheduled to perform during his "Astroworld" tour stop in Oklahoma on Monday night. Angry ticket holders rioted after the promoter announced the concert was postponed.
