Busta Rhymes' entire tour of North America has been cancelled just a week before it was scheduled to begin.

The rap legend was set to embark on a 24-leg tour of the continent in support of his latest album, "Blockbusta," next week, kicking off in San Francisco, California on March 13.

However, all of the concerts are now listed on Ticketmaster as "cancelled."

No reason for the cancellations is listed, with ticket pages simply reading: "Unfortunately, the Event Organizer has had to cancel your event," along with information about refunds.

Busta himself is yet to address the situation and his representatives did not immediately reply to Rising Rap's request for comment.

Busta isn't the only superstar rapper to have cancelled a tour at the last minute in recent days.

Last week, Ja Rule announced that the UK-leg of his The Sunrise Tour, which is celebrating his 25 years in the rap game and the upcoming release of his first studio album in over a decade, had been cancelled because he had been denied entry into the country due to his criminal record.

"I’m so devastated," the "Always on Time" rapper wrote in a post on X, the platform previously known as Twitter.

"I’ve spent a half million dollars in production of my own money to put this tour together only to be denied entry DAYS before my shows," he added. "This is not fair to me or my fans these venues are 85% sold and now I can’t come."
