The Game blames criminal past on Australia immigration issue

Rapper The Game is convinced he was turned away at an Australian airport because of his criminal past, not a visa issue.
The Hate It or Love It star flew into Melbourne on Friday (19Feb16) ahead of his four-date tour this week (beg22Feb16) but was stopped and told to leave the country by Department of Immigration and Border Protection officials as he had the wrong visas.
The Game, real name Jayceon Terrell Taylor, has now confessed his past legal issues were the cause of the problem. The Game has been involved in a number of run-ins with the law, and even went to jail for eight days for possessing a firearm in 2007. He is also set to stand trial over allegations he threatened and assaulted an off-duty police officer at basketball game last year (15).
He admits his behaviour is to blame for the tour cancellation, and he hopes that he can sort all his legal issues and return to Australia in the future.
“I did some things in the past that sort of limits by travel sometimes,” he tells TMZ.com. “So I’ll come back and get it worked out and hopefully everything with my case goes well and I’m able to get back in September before all my fans. I went all the way to Melbourne and then got denied at customs. It happens, man. We’ll get back at ’em.”
When asked about other rappers being denied entry Down Under, including Tyler, The Creator, The Game replies, “The reason you get denied entry into these countries is because basically cos you f**ked something up in your life. Try to rectify the situation, man. Maybe we all need to prove we (are) better human beings out here man so we don’t get denied in these countries where we need to go to earn some money and service these fans.”
