Rapper 50 CENT has hit out at the police after much of his entourage was today (08DEC05) barred from entering Canada to perform with him.

G-Unit members Tony Yayo, M.O.P and Young Buck were among those denied entry because of their criminal records, with just 50 Cent and Olivia and Lloyd Banks allowed to cross the border.

The star - real name CURTIS JACKSON - was only allowed to begin his tour of Canada after obtaining a temporary resident's permit.

After leaving immigration the rapper lashed out at authorities, saying, "Somebody got shot the other day and they said it was my fault and didn't want to let me in the country.

"I was in immigration for about two hours today and I thought about turning back. Young Buck got turned back. And Tony Yayo, Mobb Deep and M.O.P. But I stuck it out. F**k the police!"
