NYPD Disses Busta Rhymes

      When Busta Rhymes bodyguard was shot and killed at his video shoot a couple of year’s ago, he refused to cooperate with police who were investigating the crime. Well, it appears that the NYPD is still bitter about that and is now sticking it to the rapper.

      Over the weekend Busta was supposed to start filming, “Order of Redemption,” a crime drama starring Tom Berenger. But apparently the NYPD told the mayor’s Office of Film, Theatre and Broadcasting that having Busta chilling on the streets of New York is a pretty dangerous situation. The Office usually offers two officers when companies are filming but now because of Busta, they’re requiring additional officers to be on the movie set.

      “Due to the celebrity status of Busta Rhymes, we were unfortunately unable to meet the additional cost for the police detail that would have addressed the public safety concern,” John Fitzpatrick, a representative of the production company, said in a statement to the New York Times.

      According to a Times source, police did not want to offer the usual services to the production company because of their beef with Busta and their investigation in the murder of his bodyguard.

    NYPD just fucking with Busta cause they tryin to get the light shed off there incompetence in finding who murdered Busta’s body guard. Shit we still waiting for Jam Master’s Jay, Biggies, and 2pac killer to be caught or if deceased revealed as the murder in the case of 2pac’s possible killer. If u A hip hop artist or connected with one beware because if u get killed law enforcement and the no snitching ass holes don’t give a rat ass.
