      A U.S. rapper has cancelled the Canadian leg of his North American tour after being arrested at the Canada–U.S. border.

      Live Nation announced on April 22 that three Canadian dates for Kodak Black’s Dying to Live Tour—in Montreal (April 22), Toronto (April 23), and in Vancouver (May 7)—have all been cancelled, citing “unforeseen circumstances”. Ticketholders can receive refunds at the point of purchase.

      He was scheduled to perform at the PNE Forum with guests Calboy and Sniper Gang.

      Black, whose real name is Bill Kapri, was reported to have been arrested at the Lewiston-Queenston International Bridge on April 17 as he attempted to enter Canada from the U.S. near Niagara Falls with two other men.

      The rapper, from Florida, was arrested on charges of second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and unlawful possession of marijuana. He was reported to be released from jail after posting bail of US$20,000 cash or US$40,000 bond on April 18.
