G-Eazy was denied entry into Canada on Monday.
The 29-year-old rapper was set to headline the Cowboys Music Festival in Calgary when he ‘ran into issues with Canadian customs agents’ according to TMZ.
Although it was ‘unclear’ why the No Limit hitmaker was rejected, sources speculate his recent cocaine arrest in Sweden ‘had something to do with it’.

A statement released by Cowboys Dance Hall read: ‘Cowboys regrets to inform you that G-Eazy is unable to perform tonight due to reasons beyond our control. Refunds will be processed at the online point of purchase (Showpass)’
The entertainer – whose real name is Gerald Earl Gilliam – was arrested in Stockholm in the early hours of May 3 after he allegedly fought with an official at a nightclub in the Swedish capital.
It was alleged that he was carrying 1.5 grams of cocaine in his pocket at the time of his arrest, as well as a ‘rolled up $100 bill’, which police claim has drug residue on it.
In a police report, which was obtained by The Blast, it was claimed that the rapper had admitted to using the drug to police, before the two bags of cocaine amounting to 1.5 grams was found during a search of the star.

Police also claimed to have noticed ‘white powder on the nose’ of the Him & I musician – whose then girlfriend Halsey and friend Sean Kingston were also at the nightclub – and reported he showed visible signs of drugs use, including ‘tense, convulsive jaw muscles,’ and described his demeanour as ‘insane, crazy and rabid.’
The report went on to state that Eazy admitted to having the drugs in his possession during an interview with police, as well as confirming he struck a guard and tried to escape after being detained.
A security guard at Solidaritet nightclub noticed the start of a scuffle in the VIP room of the club, and when he stepped in to intervene, he claims Eazy struck him in the head three to four times, causing ‘swelling and pain’.

Meanwhile, his ex-girlfriend Halsey – whom he broke up with last week after dating for a year – shot down rumors she had moved on to Machine Gun Kelly on Monday.
Responding to a since-deleted tweet of her at the beach with the rapper, the 23-year-old singer wrote, ‘I’m not at the beach. I’m on tour. Alone. Slow news week I guess.’

In the photo, the electropop artist showcased her peachy posterior in a tan bikini, while the Bad Things rapper showed off his heavily tattooed torso by posing sans shirt.
However, the photo appeared to have been posted to the 28-year-old rapper’s Instagram all the way back in March 2017.
Taking to Twitter, the Not Afraid Anymore songstress addressed the photo by writing, ‘I’m not with anybody. That photo is 2 years old. Everyone mind they damn business [SIC].’
