Busta Rhymes Facing Assault Charges for Beating of Driver

busta.jpgBusta Rhymes, whose real name is Trevor Smith, is expected to be charged with third degree assault following a complaint filed by his driver Eddie Hatchett. According to the New York Post, Hatchett filed a complaint against Busta at the 1st Precinct in lower Manhattan on December 27, claiming that the rap star attacked him the day before when the driver showed up at his offices looking to collect money he was owed. Hatchett told police that the attack occurred when he arrived at Busta’s offices at 84 W. Broadway at around 7:00 p.m. on the 26th. Hatchett says that Busta landed several punches, one of which resulted in a laceration to his face. When police contacted the rapper’s attorney Robert Kalina, he informed them that he was out of the country, but said that he would come in and speak with officers upon his return. The Post quoted Hatchett as saying, “I’m just an average Joe trying to support my family.” Busta was arrested in August on charges of assault, attempted assault and harassment following allegations that he beat up a fan who accidentally spit on his car. Those charges are still pending and Busta is due back in court on February 20th.

    da big bang was better than, kingdom come, better than doctors advocate and better than blue carpet treatment. a song like newyork shit!!! is a hiphop classic to me. lukes lik busta, has been losin his temper!! he needs to pay da fukin money.

  • Shortylightskin

    2.2 million world wide ain’t a flop! Regardless its the most slept on HIPHOP album of the year! So all the young muthafuckas go listen to your Jeezy,Joc,buck,scrappy cause evidently thats what youngns wanna hear! Go buy a Blackmoon or EPMD record or somethin and educate. REAL hip hop is pretty much extinct!

  • Three4

    The Big Bang was really good, don´t judge it by “I Love My Bitch”…it was dope!

  • Who cares anymore

    I am a Busta fan, but for as much pub as the CD got, and all the Dr. Dre tracks the album was a flop. The only reason that you are calling the album one of the best of the year is because it sold 2.2 million. Busta to me has tried to hard to become a gangsta, and that was never him. I still picture Busta as the goofey looking dude in the Tribe Called Quest Video. Busta is just another rapper who has let image take him over. He needs to fire his PR people and get back to the Busta of old.

  • Who cares anymore

    It was a flop, and Busta isn’t a gangsta.

    Shortylightskin: You tell ‘em. Artists like Blackmoon, EPMD, heck-even Rakim are educated scholars. They are so intelligent. Rakim even has a P.h.d. and moonlights as a professor at the local college. Lol….
