There was a time when I loved Busta and his music. I later discovered what a real prick this guy can be. It's disappointing that these celebrities have to be such asses.

My roomates said they saw him beat the sh*t out of a girl at our apartment complex in Louisiana, in 1998. The cops came but I don't know if he was arrested.

I tell you one thing.....Busta has put on some SERIOUS weight the past year. He's got to be juicing to put on that kind of weight so fast. He's got Moon-face, too. Does he know Canseco?

Hey, PY, here's a novel idea--why not OBEY the laws, and then you won't have to worry about being arrested?
He should be in jail for not co-operating with the investigation into the murder of his bodyguard. It's been over 1 year, and nothing has happened. At the very least he's a material witness. That poor man gave up his life for this asshole, and he doesn't even help out the guy's family. The widow should sue for every penny & all future earnings.

PY, why the victim mentality. DWB, ahhh, try DWDA(driving while dumb ass). obey the traffic laws and the police wont have a reason to stop you. You see, in this great city of NY, you have to have a VALID liscense to operate a motor vehicle. If you do so without one, you are breaking the law. is that easy enough for you to understand??? racist NYPD? please go back to the south and sing we shall overcome down there. you are a loser not because of your skin color, but because of your attitude. This is something to keep in mind: if you dont break the law, you wont go to jail. .....now quit crying and get my burger, fries and drink....and it is a to go order.!!!
