Bone Thugs-n-harmony Refused Entry To Canada
Rap group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony has been denied entry into Canada because their music is "too violent". The Crossroads four-piece were scheduled to play five sold-out dates in the country but were banned by customs officials on Wednesday (30Jan08). Rapper Krayzie Bone admits he is surprised by the move - because the band toured Canada only last year (07). He tells BallerStatus.com, "We never had a problem going over there, but all of the sudden, they talking the music is too violent. "I'm like 'Man, that's crazy because we doing the same music we've done every time we came over there and nothing never happened.' "I hear a lot of people is having problems with Canada now. They did mention that they have a rising gang problem on there hands out there in Canada, so that might be one of the reasons. "It's unfortunate that our sold-out shows in Canada were cancelled, because our fans stay loyal to us and we want to stay loyal to them."
