*Lil Wayne has been forced to cancel plans for a U.K. tour this summer after British immigration officials refused to issue him a work visa due to his criminal record.

The rapper is currently on the road in the U.S. with Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross and Travis Barker, as part of his I Am Still Music Tour, and was expected to launch a European leg after the May release of “Tha Carter IV.”

But Stereoboard.com reports U.K. border officials have rejected Wayne’s visa application as a result of his recent prison stint for weapons possession. Weezy served eight months for the charge last year.

Immigration representatives also highlighted his other legal woes, including allegations of drug possession in 2008 and 2009.

As a result of the visa denial, Wayne has reportedly scrapped all planned dates in Europe, including a July 4th performance at the Marquee Festival in Cork, Ireland.

Lil Wayne’s camp has yet to comment.
