Roddy Ricch performed at the inaugural Canadian edition of Rolling Loud Festival in Toronto this September, and the fact that that happened seems to have been at least a little bit miraculous: the rapper says he likely won't be returning to Canada "anytime soon" due to alleged harassment at the hands of Federal Border Patrol.

The Compton-born artist was scheduled to open for Post Malone's Vancouver date of his Twelve Carat North American tour at Rogers Arena last night (November 6) but was unable to enter the country. He took to Instagram Stories after the fact to explain his absence.

"The Federal Border Patrol did not allow me into Vancouver, BC," the rapper wrote. "I apologize to my fans. I don't believe I'll be revisiting Canada anytime soon because they've harassed me every time I've come and Imma be completely honest, I'm tired of the harassment."

Yes, unfortunately, this was not Ricch's first incidence of being denied entry to Canada. In February 2020, when he was unable to get through border patrol, he notably claimed in a tweet that putting in a call to Drake got him into the country.

Earlier this year, Pusha T alleged that he was banned from Canada.
