The Game‘s Canadian tour has been canceled after the rapper was not allowed in the country.
The rapper, whose real name is Jayceon Taylor, was denied the Temporary Resident Permit needed to enter Canada which is required for any artist with a criminal record.
The organizers released the following statement regarding the major roadblock:
Due to circumstances beyond the artist, management, agency, and promoters’ control, we regret to announce that ‘The Game Canadian Tour 2019’ is canceled due to the Canadian Government denying the artist’s TRP application to enter legally into our country. In regards to any false press you may see surfacing to be clear the artist the Game and management ‘DID NOT CANCEL’ the Canadian tour. He was very excited to come to Canada and looking forward to seeing his Canadian fans after so long.
It is with great sadness and frustration that the Canadian government could not see the overwhelming desire and benefit, and no risk to Canadians to let artist the Game do his tour and to fulfill such a wanted need from the businesses, the promoters, and the fans it would have benefited in such a positive way.
Welp. Canada said, “Nah, Cuh…we ain’t taking no chances.”
