Kodak Black Denied Entry Into Canada, Show Postponed
Kodak Black’s Dying to Live tour suffers a setback. Apparently, the Florida rapper was denied entry into Canada.
Kodak was scheduled to perform at the Great White North's PNE Forum tonight (March 26) but in a statement posted to Twitter, the venue explained that the rapper's show was postponed due to “scheduling conflicts.” But don’t fret. Fans who have tickets for tonight’s concert can use them at the show's rescheduled date of May 7.
After the venue's announcement, DJ Showtime, Kodak's tour DJ, hopped on his Instagram account to express his disappointment. He posted an all-black image with the words, "Canada Didn't Let Us In." In the caption, he reveals that he and Kodak were denied entry into the Canadian border.
"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," he writes.
There's no word on why the 2016 XXL Freshman was blocked at the Canadian border. The 21-year-old rapper's run-ins with the law may have something to do with it. Kodak's sexual assault trial is scheduled to begin in April.
XXL has reached out to Kodak's camp for comment.
