A$AP Rocky has a, well, rocky relationship with Canada, and this week that relationship hit another speed bump.

The 24-year-old "Goldie" rapper (real name: Rakim Mayers) was due to perform at Toronto's Sound Academy on Nov. 19, a make-up show after the New Yorker had trouble getting across the border last month. Unfortunately for him and all his fans, the rescheduled performance had to be cancelled due to a bomb threat.

"Due to a public safety concern with the building, management for Sound Academy made the decision to close the venue and as a result we were forced to cancel to yesterday's performance by ASAP Rocky," concert promoter Union Events wrote on its website.

According to Aux TV, police turned up at the venue on Monday night, but fans were left scratching their heads when the start time of 8 p.m. came and went with nothing. Rumours swirled, but bomb-sniffing dogs showed up, which appeared to confirm there was indeed a bomb threat.

"ALL THIS WORK TO GET ACROSS THE F------- BORDER FOR MY SHOW TO BE CANCELLED BCUZ OF A BOGUS A-- BOMB THREAT!!!! THIS S---- EXTRA LAME...," A$AP Rocky tweeted on Monday, adding, "THIS IZ F---ED UP , NOT FAIR AT ALL, ALL THAT WORK TO GET PASS THE BORDER, I F---KIN CANT BELIEVE THIS S---, FML, FUCK!!! IM SOO BORED NOW!! "

Though Canadian fans may be disappointed that the show will not be rescheduled (ticket holders can get refunds), it's not entirely surprising, given ASAP Rocky's recent history with the Great White North. The rapper has been turned away at the border no fewer than three times in two months.

On Sept. 30, a month after he had performed in Toronto for Drake's OVO Festival at Caribana, the Harlem-born rapper was refused entry into Canada for the first time for a concert in Montreal. He, Danny Brown, and Schoolboy Q reportedly had to postpone the show with only a few hours' notice.

A few days later, the group had to postpone another show, this time at Toronto's Sound Academy on Oct. 2, after they were turned away again. The promoters cited "unforeseen immigration issues" as the reason for the holdup, according to Aux TV.

"COULDNT MAKE IT ACROSS THE BORDER I APOLOGIZE TO THE FANS WE'RE RESCHEDULING A NEW DATE," Rocky tweeted at the time.

Though Canadian fans had high hopes for his Oct. 20 concert at the Vogue Theatre in Vancouver, it turns out that show was also cancelled "due to immigration issues."

Maybe next time Drake could lend Rocky his passport.
