Former G-Unit rapper The Game has blasted American security officials for always allowing him to board planes - even though he wears a knife around his neck.

Airport surveillance has been drastically stepped up since the September 11 (01) atrocities to prevent terrorists hijacking planes, but The Game insists customs staff have never spotted the deadly weapon concealed in his diamond-encrusted crucifix.

He says, "I've walked through every airport security check in America with this. And motherf**king customs have never spotted it once."

The hip-hop star's boast contradicts reports he was forced to cancel two gigs in Mexico in March (05) after he refused to let border officials search his suitcase.
