Busta Rhymes turns himself in to New York police

Busta Rhymes turned himself in to police on Wednesday in New York and was arrested and charged with misdemeanor third degree assault in connection with an alleged attack on his former driver.

The driver, whose name was not released by police, told authorities that Rhymes, 34, (born Trevor Smith) assaulted him outside a building in Lower Manhattan on December 26 during an argument over money, punching him in the face, according to New York Police Department Detective John Sweeney.

Rumors of Rhymes' imminent arrest had been building for a week, and his lawyer said the rapper planned to turn himself in when he returned from a Christmas-vacation trip outside the country. Upon his return, Rhymes appeared at a police station in Lower Manhattan on Wednesday with his attorney and was promptly arrested and booked. At press time, he was still incarcerated while waiting arraignment. Rhymes' attorney, Robert Kalina, could not be reached for comment, and a representative for his label declined comment on the incident.

It's the latest legal tangle for Rhymes, who was charged with assault in August following a performance at the AmsterJam show in New York, where he allegedly kicked a 19-year-old man in the head because the man spit on his car (see "Lawyer Claims Busta Rhymes Arrest Is 'Payback' "). He was also ticketed by police in November when they saw him talking on his cell phone while driving past a Manhattan police station. And in December, Rhymes was charged with a misdemeanor weapons count for a machete police said they found in his car during the August arrest.

Though officials did not release the name of the driver in the latest case, the New York Post earlier reported that his name is Eddie Hatchett, 39, who claimed in a complaint filed on December 27 that he visited Rhymes at his office on the evening of December 26 to request back pay he said he was owed by the rapper. When confronted by Hatchett, Rhymes allegedly became violent, the Post reported, punching the driver in the face several times and causing a laceration that required a trip to the hospital.

Little Bit of Interesting News (50 Cent and Ja Rule)

50 gets Ticket in Harlem

50 Cent was pulled over by police in harlem yesterday, but this traffic stop went much more smoothly than the one he had earlier this year.

A crowd gathered as police ticketed 50 Cent, aka Curtis Jackson, for making a wrong turn.

Back in September, 50 Cent was pulled over in a Lamborghini in New York City for making an unsafe lane change, and was also cited for driving with an expired license. Looks like 50 caught a break this time.




Ja Rule Plays Santa in his Old Neighborhood

Ja Rule came home to his old neighborhood and brought toys and games for kids in Jamaica, Queens, yesterday.
"I'm trying to spread some holiday cheer, baby," said Ja Rule. "I came to play Santa today. This is my 'hood. This is where I'm from."

The recipients were students at the Amistad Early Childhood Education Center on 164th Place in Jamaica.

"It was wonderful," said second-grader Clyde Quallis, 7. "I'm so glad Ja Rule came to Amistad. I thank him very much for the present."

Ja Rule made the donation on behalf of LIFE Camp Inc., an organization he co-founded to improve the academic and social behavior of at-risk youth.

"I think it's very nice that he came to the community and that he didn't forget where he came from. I like that," said Ellis, a city education worker.

"It's wonderful that he, a celebrity, can inspire them to do good work," said Janilee Yanny, program director for Amistad.

"He does a lot of positive things, and people don't know that," Salt 'n Pepa member Cheryl (Salt) James said of Ja Rule.

New Wu-Tang album in 07

SRC Records CEO Steve Rifkind recently announced that he has reunited with the Wu-Tang Clan for a new album.

Wu-Tang, who first came to prominence via Rifkind's now-defunct Loud Records, have not released a group album since 2001. During their six year hiatus, all nine members of the New York bred rap collective have released solo albums.

The group's most infamous member, ODB (born Russell Tyrone Jones), died in 2004 from an accidental overdose while recording his third solo project.

"I just got off the phone with Divine and RZA from Wu-Tang, we are coming back, we are joining forces for one album, coming up in 2007," said Rifkind via a video on his blog , thelabel.blog.com. "I don't know what the name of the album is but we are back, its official. Wu-Tang and Steve Rifkind are back together."

Rifkind is also credited for breaking rap acts like Mobb Deep, Big Pun and Xzibit, among others. His current SRC roster includes Akon, Remy Ma, Pharoahe Monch and Remy Ma.
