Last night, the NYPD refused to let Joe Budden be great. Slaughterhouse performed at the Best Buy Theatre in New York City yesterday, as schedule, but they were down one member. It turns out that Budden was arrested for a warrant that dates back to 2007, reports MTV RapFix.
The Slaughterhouse members on hand, Joell Ortiz, Royce Da 5’9″ and Crooked I, revealed the fate of Budden shortly after beginning their set. With plenty of music between them the show went on, but reportedly the crowd occasionally would chant for Joe Budden, with Royce replying, “”We love Joey too, chanting for him ain’t gonna get him outta jail.”
Apparently, Budden was arrested sometime after soundcheck since he tweeted earlier, “Best buy theater… The calm b4 the storm,” along with a photo of the venue (below).
And why was Budden allegedly hauled off to the bing? A traffic violation. Parking tickets, according to Miss Info.
