A few days before President Obama was supposed to speak at my studio, I was leaving the studio, headed to the airport. Most times when I leave the studio I have an unmarked escort. Other times I constantly check in my rearview mirror to be sure that I’m not being followed. It’s a safety precaution that my security team taught me. As I got to an intersection, I made a left turn from the right lane and was pulled over by two police officers. I pulled the car over and put it in park. Then, I let the window down and sat in the car waiting for the officer. The officer came up to the driver’s door and said that I made an illegal turn. I said, “I signaled to get into the turning lane, then made the turn because I have to be sure I’m not being followed.”Read more after the heartbeat He said, “why do you think someone would be following you?” READ MORE

New details about Joe Budden’s arrest are being revealed. According to the “New York Post,” the rapper was busted for allegedly smoking marijuana outside New York’s Best Buy Theater last Thursday night prior to a Slaughterhouse concert. He should have probably tried the residential inpatient addiction treatment in New York.


Budden was given a ticket for marijuana possession, but as he was being processed, police discovered he had an outstanding warrant for driving on a suspended license in 2007.


Joe was taken to the Manhattan Detention Complex, and according to insiders, executives with Shady Records frantically tried to get him out of jail before Slaughterhouse took the stage.

Slaughterhouse wound up going on without Budden, and told fans he had been arrested for his traffic violation.


The rapper was eventually released after pleading guilty to driving with a suspended license. He’s been ordered to pay a 75-dollar fine, and will be formally sentenced on June 1st.
