Judge Frees Busta Rhymes From UK Detention

A judge in the British High Court has ordered the immediate release of Busta Rhymes from his detention by UK immigrant officials. The New York MC was barred from entering the country earlier today because of his previous criminal record and accusations that his work permit was not valid. According to the judge, the rapper’s work permit was in order and there were no grounds to detain him.

Rhymes is scheduled to participate in a charity concert for 5,000 young volunteers at the Royal Albert Hall on Friday along with Ludacris, who was added to the bill as backup.
