When Jim Jones and Juelz Santana tried to cross the border to head into Canada yesterday (June 10), little did they know they were in for a rude awakening. The Dipset emcees were denied entry into the country due to their arrest records, TMZ reports.
They were heading to Canada to kick off an 11-city tour. They both reportedly sought legal assistance prior to going to Canada because they figured that thier previous arrests would be a problem. After consulting with lawyers who worked with Immigration and the FBI, they were told they should not have any problems, but were still denied entry.
Juelz was arrested in 2009 for making a death threat and again in 2011 for terrorist threats. Jimmy has three arrests, one in 2012 for a casino brawl and twice in 2013 for driving while intoxicated and disorderly conduct.
Since they are now missing performances, they claim they are losing out on $500,000.
