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.

@Lori - He's from Compton... stupid.
@Frito - He is a gang member and has earned his right to call himself that. that doesn't mean he is not a bad guy. He is trying to not be a gangster by having a rap career. mess up his rap career and he will go back to what he knows, which is being a gangster.
@Janet - google.. ever heard of it?

Hello is anybody in there? less than a minute ago Wow really? Wish Mexico bordered Canada wonder how the Canadians would handle the drug cartels?
---------------

LMFAO, we don't need Mexican drug cartels, we have everyone else's here. You can't go onto any STREET in my area without finding a crack shack, a grow op or a meth lab. Hell, cocaine ain't the drug of choice here when you can buy all you need off a store shelf and make meth for five bucks a hit.
