The Game

Banned from Canada Over Gang Ties

4/21/2011 6:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Game was detained in Canada for several hours yesterday, TMZ has learned, before his ass got deported back to the U.S. -- and we're told, it's all because of the rapper's alleged gang affiliation.

A rep for Substance Entertainment Group -- the promotion company behind Game's tour in Canada -- tells TMZ, the tour promoter got a call from Canadian Customs while Game was on the plane on his way to Canada.

We're told customs informed the promoter that Game would be denied entry "due to new information received that Game is affiliated with organized crime and is an active member of the Bloods street gang."

The rep claims Game was blindsided by the last-minute red flag -- telling us, concert organizers had secured all permits and approval weeks ago to get Game into the country.

Bad news for everyone who bought a ticket to his upcoming Canadian shows -- tour's cancelled.

At least Canada has the balls to not put up with a bunch of gang thugs.

All these rappers like to pretend they are gangsters (BTW nice LA logo on your face), so it shouldn't come as a surprise when they suffer some of the repercussions that come along with that lifestyle.

If Canada can find out he has ties to the Bloods, which should be a shoot-you-full-of-holes-if-you-talk kind of secret, why the hell can't be find billions illegals?! This is some really messed-up crap we got going on here in the good old U S of A.

Good! I got turned away from the Canadian Border for a bullsh*t misdemeanor that occured 4 years ago. Its nice to see that there is no "celebrity justice" in this matter regardless of how much money you may have.
