Busta Rhymes prevented playing a concert for charity

LONDON – rapper Busta Rhymes said that he would ask Britain’s High Court to overturn a government order that prevented him from playing a concert for charity.

Immigration officers stopped the rapper on Thursday at an airport in London and said he was not allowed into the country because of previous legal difficulties in the United States.

Concert promoters say a judge ordered his release. But he still can not perform.

The concert is a charity concert. People who had completed four hours of volunteer work were rewarded with a concert ticket.

Rhymes said in a statement that it was in Britain to put on a show for volunteers and hopes to be on stage Friday as planned.LONDON – rapper Busta Rhymes said that he would ask Britain’s High Court to overturn a government order that prevented him from playing a concert for charity.
