An A$AP Rocky concert in Canada was recently cancelled following a bomb scare.

The New York rapper was due to perform at Toronto's Sound Academy on Monday night (November 19) when the venue chose to cancel the show following the threat.

According to Aux.TV, K-9 (police dog) units were called to the venue shortly before the rapper’s scheduled performance. Although it is unclear whether the threat was genuine, the gig was called off.

Rocky vented his anger on Twitter, saying: "THIS IS FUCKED UP, NOT FAIR AT ALL, ALL THAT WORK TO GET PAST THE BORDER, I FUCKIN' CAN'T BELIEVE THIS SHIT, FML, FUCK!!! IM SOO BORED NOW!!"

The rescheduled gig was originally cancelled last month after Canadian customs denied him access to the country.

A$AP Rocky recently confirmed that his debut album will not be released until 2013. The rapper was originally due to release his 'LongLiveA$AP' album in September of this year but rescheduled the release date to October 31. But it was rescheduled because mastering of the LP was taking longer than expected.

The album, which is likely to feature the track 'Goldie', is also rumoured to include collaborations with Santigold and Pharrell Williams, as well as his 'Ridin'' – his collaboration with Lana Del Rey that was pulled from the KickDrums' recent mixtape.

Rocky recently spoke about his time spent recording with Lana Del Rey, admitting that he wanted to "bone" the 'Video Games' singer
