Busta Rhymes banned from movie set
Rapper Busta Rhymes was in NYC this weekend attempting to make an appearance in the crime drama Order of Redemption, but the NYPD put a quick stop to it.
"The production agreed that Busta Rhymes would not be participating in the scenes shot here after the police department raised public safety concerns," said Julianne Cho of the Mayor's Office of Film, Theatre and Broadcasting.
The police still haven't said what those "public safety concerns" are, but the New York Times is reporting the producers could not meet the cost of hiring extra officers that police said were necessary due to the rapper's celebrity status.
"Celebrity status?" In other words they are worried that he might get moody and hit someone. Imagine how much security it would take to get Naomi Campbell in your movie!
