UPDATE: Busta Rejects Plea Deal on Assault, DUI Charges

busta-13.jpgBusta Rhymes rejected a plea offer this morning that would have landed him in jail for a year. According to website TMZ.com, Manhattan District Attorney spokesman Edison Alban announced that the rapper had rejected the judges offer of one year in jail, an alcohol treatment program and a $1500 fine. Busta stands accused of attacking his former driver Eddie Hatchet during an argument about money, and assaulting a fan that allegedly spit on his car. Prosecutors previously offered him a deal on both charges, but it was later withdrawn when he was picked up for driving with a suspended license. Busta is due back in court on July 10.

    I am reading the comments and I see ya’ll saying shit like, “Maybe he needs to get his mind right,” well fuck all that. I don’t know what happened with his driver, but as far as the fan spitting on my car I would whoop his ass too. I payed guap for this car, and I would be a fool to let some random nobody spit on my car and get away with it, I think the real reason busta is getting into all this shit is karma (No Ghandi) I mean fuck the police and snitches are the scum of the earth, but at least ride on some niggas, hell hire the help bus, you got money, right?

    RAPPERS WILL LEARN THAT THEY AREN’T MOVIE GANGSTAS FROM THE 80′S, 50′S & 40′S ALCAPON TYPES THAT THINK THAT THEY ARE UNTOUCHABLE… IF PARIS HILTON IS GOING TO JAIL BEST BELIEVE BUSTA’ GONNA’ DO SOMETIME.

    don’t blame white folks for the dumb shit we do sometimes. busta needs to be locked up. the shit he has done altogether would have landed a commoner in jail for 3 to 4 years. His money will only put him in there for a year. that native toungues shit was only a gimmick obviously.

    I’m starting to wonder if they’re really trying to get Busta for good, (Dave Chappelle “they’re locking all are stars up”) They must be on him about that Israel Ramirez case, remember that hasn’t been solved yet, which I think is f*cked up. If a close friend of mine was killed right in front of me and I’m able to do something about it without getting myself killed in the process, that person is going down, I wouldn’t even give them to the police I’d lock them away somewhere and have my own justice system deal with them, ssshhhhiit. However we don’t know what actually happened on that video shoot, I feel for the Ramirez family, it’ll come out one day, just a matter of when.

    Busta shouldn’t go to jail for this drinking thing though, that’s bullshit, I’m here in London and half the population drinks and drives on the weekend nights, just a question of if you get caught.

    London Massive! from the depths of Hackney!
