RAPPER BUSTA RHYMES CUT FROM MOVIE SHOOT

 

A movie production company began filming the picture “Order of Redemption” in Manhattan Saturday (March 10) without one of its actors, rapper Busta Rhymes, after the Police Department raised public safety concerns about him.

 

The city typically supplies two police officers free for film shoots, but Julianne Cho, assistant commissioner of the mayor’s Office of Film, Theater and Broadcasting, said the police demanded the production company hire more officers because of Rhymes’ celebrity.

 

“Due to the celebrity status of Busta Rhymes, we were unfortunately unable to meet the additional cost for the police detail that would have addressed the public safety concern,” John Fitzpatrick, a representative of the production company, said in a statement.

 

Another official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly, said the Police Department did not want to provide the usual services to the production because Mr. Smith had refused to cooperate with a murder investigation.

 

Increased security requests may stem from the Feb. 5, 2006 fatal shooting of Rhymes’ bodyguard, Israel Ramirez.  Ramirez was fatally shot outside a Brooklyn warehouse where the rapper was shooting a video. The police maintain that Rhymes has not cooperated even though he was standing by Mr. Ramirez when he was killed.
