The Game’s Canada tour has been abruptly canceled due to customs officials detaining and denying him entry into the country.
The Compton emcee kept his fans updated on the three-hour ordeal via Twitter, and disclosed his previous issues with gaining access date back to 2005.
“I haven’t been able to get in Canada since the Documentary dropped!!!” Game Tweeted. “Its been a minute mayne [sic]. See y’all in 4 hours….Now boarding.”
According to Game, he trusted the concert promoters to handle his previous visa issues. He now faces possible jail time or deportation after a hearing. He expects to be detained for at least two weeks.
“I’m sorry to all my fans but I was mislead by promoters and assured I would be able to enter,” he said. “I’m being detained in Canada for 14 days until they process my inadmissability [sic] then I’ll have a hearing heard by a judge.”
Game’s case marks the third time in recent motnhs that Hip-Hop artists have been turned back at the border. Swollen Members, Cam’Ron and Vado were all denied entry for previous criminal convictions.
Game’s Canadian tour was scheduled to begin April 23 in Toronto and run through May 7 in Lethbridge.
