Who needs a press release when there's Twitter. Rapper the Game tweeted as he was being denied entry into Canada earlier today. He will be held for 14 days before he goes in front of a judge who will decide whether they will deport him or sentence him for violating Canada's immigrant entry laws.

"Custom officials just denied me entry into Canada. I'm sorry 2 all my fans but I was mislead by promoters & assured I would be able to enter," Game wrote.

According to his twitter timeline, officials allowed him to tweet and call home before taking away his devices.

The Compton MC flew into Canada from Australia where he performed at the three-day Supafest 2011 music festival alongside Snoop Dogg, Bow Wow, Nelly, T-Pain, Busta Rhymes, and a host of other hip hop acts.
