“This just in: I’m being detained in Canada for 14 days until they process my inadmissability then I’ll have a hearing heard by a judge.”
“At that point the judge will decide to either deport me or give me a sentence for violating Canada’s immigrant entry laws.”

“Gotta give up my phone & property. This some straight bullshit ! Flew all the way from LA to be denied and detained ?!?! WTF” (Game’s Twitter)

This go the country that did it to us — Montreal, we sorry. We in Torontocustoms. Sorry about that. Love y’all Montreal.” (Twit Vid)
Outside of immigration complications, Game is currently preparing his upcoming R.E.D. Album.
“The ‘R.E.D.’ album is going to remind everybody of what hip-hop is supposed to be in its prime,” says Game. “The ‘R.E.D.’ album will be the best album this year hands down. There’s nobody putting out an album this year that will even be able to compete with the skill level– the bar is gonna be set after this album drops. I guarantee it now from start to finish.” (Billboard)
