Rapper Waka Flocka Flame is currently on his "Friends, Fans, and Family" tour, but it looks as if he will be forced to miss the Virginia shows of the tour.
Flocka took to Twitter Monday night to announce that his Virginia shows will be canceled because he has been banned from the state of Virginia.
There is no official word on why the rapper is banned from Virginia, but many speculate it is connected to Waka's supposed gang affiliation. The state of Virginia, however, has not revealed much information on the situation.
"And they wonder why I say "F*ck the police," the Atlanta rapper tweeted.
Waka was referring to being denied entry into Canada last year, and forced to cancel a performance, HipHopWired reports. There was no official word given as to why the "No Hands" rapper wasn't allowed into the country.
In April of that year, Compton rapper Game was also turned away at the Canadian border because of his record, and tweeted that he spent two weeks in detainment.
That same month, YMBMB rapper Lil Wayne was also prohibited from performing in Canada due to his criminal past, thus cutting his "I Am Music II" tour short.
Weezy had two shows scheduled there, April 27 in Vancouver and April 29 in Calgary.
Meanwhile, rapper Waka Flocka Flame's tour is scheduled to pick back up Friday in Sayreville, NJ, he tweeted
VA and Canada aren't the only places, the rapper has had problems in. Earlier this year, Waka received a cease and desist order by the North Carolina Protective Services Board saying his "security team" was banned from the state, TMZ reports.
The state of North Carolina banned Waka's security team because they are unlicensed in the state.
In 2011, Waka's entourage shot at 2 cars in retaliation to being shot at themselves. The incident took place in North Carolina, and resulted in two arrests. This is the main reason why the rapper's security team is banned from the state.
