WATCH  | Mos Def was granted permission to finally leave South Africa after his immigration drama.

Hip-Hop star Yasiin Bey -- also known as Mos Def -- left South Africa Tuesday after making a deal with authorities who accused him of violating the country's immigration laws, according to South Africa's home affairs department.

Bey was arrested earlier this year in Cape Town after he tried to leave South Africa using a "world passport," an idealistic travel document issued by a pacifist organization promoting a world without borders. Authorities say charges against him will be dropped.

The government says Bey used a U.S. passport upon departure.

Bey has announced he is retiring from the music business.

He is set to hold farewell concerts in December in New York and Washington, D.C.
