In this YouTube video, a multitude of R&B and rap stars from Brandy to Keri Hilson ask the question "Who is Ester Dean?" Please don't think that I'm only posting this video because Ester is a perfect example of dark chocolate couverture. I honestly think the girl is talented.

Thanks to loyal reader Fairley M. of UMusic for the video link!

According to Live Nation, Lil Wayne's Canadian concert dates scheduled for tonight and tomorrow were canceled due to “circumstances beyond Live Nation’s control.” The reality is that Canada refused to grant the rapper permission to enter the country.

Maybe it was the ongoing court cases involving drugs and gun charges that convinced them Weezy isn't exactly a model citizen? Canada previously refused to grant entry to the rapper back in June 2008. Maybe Weezy should have called ahead first before rolling up to the border and getting turned around.

Can you blame Canada for refusing certain rappers admission into their country? Who wants that rolling roadshow of drugs, sex and mayhem crossing the border into their country? You know Wayne has no discipline and his handlers seem to have trouble handling him and all.

Rappers Young Jeezy, Soulja Boy and Canadian-born Drake are all on tour with Wayne. Soulja Boy tweeted that he was flying to California now that he has some time off.

Rapper Nicki Minaj, who was on one of the tour busses, tweeted that authorities were “being extra” and searching another bus that was attempting to enter the country. “Ni***z brought the dogs out and s**t,” she groused online. Well, maybe if N***z knew how to act and s**t, the Canadians wouldn't have to be so extra? The border guards probably smelled the chronic on the bus from a mile away.

Lil Wayne is not the only rapper to be turned around at the border. According to AllHipHop.com, DMX, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Tony Yayo, Young Buck, and other members of 50 Cent’s G-Unit have all been refused permission to enter the country.
