Joe Budden was arrested in New York right before he was set to go on stage with his fellow Slaughterhouse members. Police arrived at the pre-concert party and arrested him over an unpaid $75 parking ticket dating back to 2007!
Now, I am as law-abiding as the next guy.. but c'mon guys!!! REALLY? Anyway, he was escorted away. The concert continued as scheduled. Crooked I, Royce and Joel Ortiz had a blistering performance. They did have a slightly difficult time explaining Joe's whereabouts to the expectant fans.
A spokesman said "Cops showed up at a pre-concert meet-and-greet and informed Joe about a warrant out for his arrest due to an unpaid traffic ticket. The original fine was only $75... but cops still decided to arrest Joe and took him back to the station where he was booked and processed."
Joe has been released and is now back in action.
Eminem, Bruno Mars and Royca da 5'9 have yet another reason to celebrate because 'Lighters', their inspiring collaboration has just been certified double platinum. Eminem seems to be unstoppable and his comeback story has become as inspiring if not more than his initial rise to fame in the early 2000s. 'Lighters' was released as a single and also featured on 'Hell: The Sequel', the hit album from 'Bad meets Evil' (Eminem and Royce). And while I could go on and on about how great the song is, here's the song and the AMAZING video. Enjoy!
