Intersect, a two day festival sponsored by Amazon Web Services, is due to take place next month in Las Vegas. The event has been mired in controversy, however, with The Black Madonna claiming she was not told of the festival's corporate links when she agreed to appear. She subsequently axed her scheduled appearance, citing Amazon's ties with ICE and Homeland Security. Today, November 26, Brooklyn Vegan reports that JPEGMAFIA has followed in The Black Madonna's footsteps and pulled his appearance at the event.

Neither JPEGMAFIA nor Intersect have confirmed this line-up change, though the Baltimore rapper's name no longer appears on the festival website or schedule. The FADER has reached out to JPEGMAFIA's representative's for comment, and we'll update this post if we hear back.

Kacey Musgraves, Foo Fighters, Beck, Jamie XX, Weyes Blood, SOPHIE, and Snail Mail are all due to perform at Intersect, which takes place on December 6-7.
