BUSTA DETAINED AT LONDON CITY AIRPORT
I was supposed to be hooking up with Busta today at 6pm, to interview him just before my radio show today then i got a text from my producer saying it was a no show, and he was detained at the airport.
I really cant belive this.....Rhymes is due to play at Orange RockCorps, a concert to be attended by a full house of 5,000 music fans at the Royal Albert Hall in London.
Each fan has obtained their ticket by spending four hours volunteering in community projects.
US soul star John Legend is also due to appear, as are rock bands Feeder, The Automatic and Guillemots.
Rhymes was allowed into the UK to launch the event on 17 August, which saw him helping to pick up litter in London to promote the event.
He also performed at the Midnight Madness basketball event in the city.
Stephen Greene, the co-founder of RockCorps, said he was "shocked at this sequence of events and this treatment of Busta".
So they let him into the country last month,but this month they were like....NAh........
When was the last time you heard a rock act being detained in the UK????????????????????????????????
SOME INTERESTING FACTS:
He has a valid work permit for Friday’s performance.
He has been into the country twice already this year to perform commercial gigs two commercial gigs including Nike Midnight Madness at Wembley arena.
Busta has already been let into the UK this year for Orange RockCorps work, when he completed charity work for Sports Action Zone in Lambeth, which was aired on T4.
5,000 fans who gave their time to charitable causes are expecting to see him play tomorrow night.
20,000 hours of voluntary work have been completed by young volunteers in the UK in order to see Busta Rhymes perform.
Busta Rhymes has never served any time in prison, and has completed community service for his convictions.
IS IT ME OR IS THIS TOTALLY OUT OF ORDER?????
HOLLA BACK AND LEAVE A COMMENT YO!!!
