Earlier this week, Game announced via Twitter that he was being denied entry into Canada. Now, TMZ is reporting that the reason he was stopped by customs is over his affiliation with the Bloods gang.

According to a rep for Substance Entertainment Group, the promotion company that booked Game's Canadian tour, Canadian customs refused to let Game in "due to new information received that Game is affiliated with organized crime and is an active member of the Bloods street gang."

The rep says that the news came while Game was on a plane from Australia already en route to Canada. The rapper, who was detained on Wednesday, was deported back to the U.S. yesterday.
