The venue says the show will be rescheduled.
Just when you thought Kodak Black was taking a break from getting himself in the headlines, word around the block is that the rapper had to postpone one of his shows after being denied entry into Canada. The rapper has been at the center of controversy for the past few weeks after beefing with as many people as possible on social media. He went tit-for-tat with Reginae Carter, he made a few lewd comments about Young M.A, and then he rubbed a lot of people the wrong way after saying he was at a higher rap caliber than hip hop greats Nas, Tupac, and Biggie. Not to mention his back-and-forth beefs with actor Michael Rapaport and rapper Sticky Fingaz.
His Instagram is offline leaving many to speculate that he shut down his social media page following the backlash, but the rapper has still been touring. However, Kodak ran into some issues when he attempted to make his way into Canada to perform at the PNE Forum today. The venue sent out a tweet telling fans that the show was canceled due to "scheduling conflicts" and that the show will be rescheduled.
"POSTPONED SHOW ANNOUNCEMENT: Due to scheduling conflicts, the Kodak Black show scheduled for tonight, March 26 at the PNE Forum has been rescheduled for Tuesday, May 7. Previously purchased tickets will be honoured at the door on the new date."
However, Kodak's DJ, DJ Showtime, set the record straight with an Instagram post. "I didn’t know it’s was so hard getting into Canada, but for all the fans who wanted to see Kodak Black tonight sorry! Y’all government don’t play the radio, just know we tried to get in there for y’all and Kodak is very upset about the outcome of this situation. #DyingToLiveTour"
Why Kodak wasn't able to cross the northern United States border has yet to be made public, but he isn't the only rapper who has been denied entry into the country. Back in January, Canada also wouldn't let The Game come through for a series of performances.
