Rapper Snoop Dogg has been banned from entering Australia after failing a character test, according to officials.
Snoop Dogg was also recently denied a UK visa
The star - real name Calvin Broadus - was due to co-host the MTV Australian Video Music Awards on Sunday.
The 35-year-old had his visa cancelled after recently pleading no contest to gun and drug charges in the US.
"He doesn't seem the sort of bloke we want in this country," Immigration Minister Kevin Andrews told Sydney's Macquarie Radio.
"This man has been a member of a Los Angeles gang, and is still associated with it apparently, that's been involved in murder, robberies and drug dealing in the LA area," Mr Andrews added.
Back in February, when Mr Broadus last visited Australia, immigration officials warned him then that he could face a ban if he got into anymore trouble.
The rapper now has 28 days to protest the decision.
Donald Etra, the rapper's Los Angeles-based lawyer, said he had not heard from his client about the visa cancellation and could not comment.
Snoop Dogg was forced to pull out of his UK tour with P Diddy
The decision follows a string of incidents that Mr Broadus has been involved in over the past year.
He was recently given five years probation and 800 hours of community service in the US after pleading no contest to gun and drug charges.
And last month he was forced to scrap his UK tour with fellow rapper P Diddy after authorities denied him a visa.
On a previous visit to the UK, the rapper and members of his entourage spent a night in jail after being accused of starting a fight at Heathrow Airport.
He was also held overnight by police in Sweden on suspicion of using drugs.
