Kodak Black reportedly denied entry to Canada ahead of Vancouver show

Rapper Kodak Black and his road crew have been denied entry to Canada ahead of a scheduled performance Tuesday night in Vancouver, British Columbia, according to an Instagram post by Kodak’s on-stage DJ.

The rapper from Pompano Beach is currently in the midst of his 32-city “Dying To Live” tour, which began March 14 in New Orleans. Black was slated to perform in Vancouver at the PNE forum Tuesday night after playing in Seattle on Monday night.

An Instagram post by DJ Showtime, who accompanies Kodak Black on stage, stated “Canada Didn’t Let Us In.”

“I didn’t know [it] 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,” the post explained.

It wasn’t yet clear why Kodak wasn’t allowed into Canada. The rapper has a history of legal problems and jail stints, and much like the U.S., foreigners seeking entry to Canada can be denied for a host of reasons ranging from seemingly minor paperwork issues all the way up to being viewed as a threat to national security.
