Rhymes Asking Britain's High Court For Rap Rights

By  | 

LONDON - Rapper Busta Rhymes says he will ask Britain's High Court to rescind a government order that would prevent him from playing a charity concert.

Immigration officials stopped the rapper on Thursday at a London airport 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 cannot perform.

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

Rhymes says in a statement that he was in Britain to put on a show for the volunteers and that he hopes to be on stage Friday as scheduled.
