The Game is not welcome in Canada, sources reports the Compton rapper was stopped by airport police last week on Wednesday April 20th and detained pending a decision of the Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB).
Officially, there was an explanation, but it is thought that the previous convictions in the United States, may have played a role in the stop to the artist. And it was the same The Game to spread the news on Twitter:
“Customs officials just denied me entry into Canada. I’m sorry 2 ALL my fans but I was mislead by promoters & assured I would be able 2 enter. I’m being detained in Canada for 14 days until they process my inadmissibility then I’ll have a hearing heard by a judge. At that point the judge will decide to either deport me or give me a sentence for violating Canada’s immigrant entry laws. Fucked up situation !!! But at least they let me call home, & tweet before they lock a n**ga up!!! Gotta turn in my property, y’all be kool… Gotta give up my phone & property. This some straight bullshit ! Flew all the way from LA to be denied and detained?!?!”
Meanwhile, the promoter who organized the concert of the rapper in Canada, announced the cancellation of the entire tour: “The hip hop artist The Game is not longer able to perform in Canada in support of his ‘Red nation tour’ due to circumstances beyond our control. Tickets will be fully repaid“, it said in a statement from the promoter, the Substance Entertainment Group.
