Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame can add another region disinterested in having him come and tour as the Brick Squad Monopoly leader is now banned from Virginia.
According to Flocka, he is no longer allowed to tour the Southern state.
"JUST GOT WORD THAT IM BAND FROM THE STATE OF VIRGINIA ... SOOOO MY NORFOLK AND RICHMOND SHOW IS CANCELLED," he tweeted October 1st.
"AND THEY WONDER WHY I SAY F*CK THE POLICE"
"SOOO.... TOUR PICK UP IN SAYREVILLE, NJ THIS FRIDAY #TFLMOTHERF*CKER"

Back in March, Waka reportedly got restricted from North Carolina.
In the letter, the NC Board cites a tour bus incident in Charlotte, NC last year -- when members of Waka's entourage opened fire on cars after being shot at ... an incident that resulted in at least two arrests. Now, NC ain't taking any chances -- refusing to allow ANY members of Waka's entourage to engage in private or protective security services while Waka's in the Tar Heel State. If they fail to comply, the NC Protective Services Board promises to file criminal charges. Sources close to the rapper tell TMZ, the NCPSB is merely trying to harass them -- insisting they have the right to self-defense like anyone else. We're told Waka and his team are currently exploring their legal options. (TMZ)
In February 2011, six men were arrested for their suspected involvement in a North Carolina shooting targeted at Waka Flocka.
Andre Sellers, Antoine Washington, Xavier Hoover, David Bellamy, Barry Lawrence and Antonio Stukes are all being charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery and two counts of felony shooting into occupied property. All are under at least $200,000 bond. Some face additional charges. Police say the men were trying to rob rapper Waka Flocka Flame of his jewelry, while his tour bus got a sound system upgrade at a store on Independence Blvd. on Wednesday. Members of the rapper's security team fired at the men who shot at the bus. (WCNC News)
While initially claiming Waka was not the target, further reports suggested the botched robbery was motivated by the rapper's jewelry.
RumorFix has learned exclusively that the gunmen who opened fire on Waka Flocka Flame's tour bus on Wednesday were after his $1.2 million necklace. Waka's publicist, Kali Bowyer, tells RumorFix exclusively, "We are pleased with the attentiveness by the Charlotte Police Department in capturing these individuals in such a timely manner. It is such a shame that one would risk the lives of innocent women and children in hopes of stealing one's jewelry." (RumorFix)
