Busta Rhymes Allowed to Perform at London Concert after Detainment
Just one day after being detained at a British airport, Busta Rhymes is being allowed to perform at a charity concert at London’s Royal Albert Hall on Friday night. The rapper was detained by London authorities when he arrived at the airport on Thursday. British immigration officials were attempting to have the rapper sent back to the due to his criminal record.
“We are selective about who we let into the UK and will oppose this entry to the UK of people who have been found guilty of serious criminal offenses abroad,” a spokesperson for the Immigration Department said in a statement. “It’s important that people play by the rules and earn the right to stay.”
A high court judge ruled in Rhymes’ favor and ordered that the rap star be released and allowed to perform at the concert. John Legend and Ludacris are also set to perform at the show, which celebrate 5,000 fans who obtained tickets by doing volunteer work.
