Joe Budden Arrested for 5-Year Old Violation
But the show must go on
Rap supergroup Slaughterhouse performed in New York last night, but member Joe Budden was clearly MIA.
Just minutes before the show, Budden was arrested by the NYPD for a warrant issued for a 2007 traffic violation.
Joell Ortiz opened the show with his verse of the fan-favorite "The Illest" and Crooked I followed. But when Royce Da 5'9 came out to "Sound Off," the audience began to wonder where the fourth artist was.

Slaughterhouse then announced that Budden had been detained.
Without being prompted, the crowd began to chant "Joey, Joey, Joey" and did so for much of the concert.
The noise may have become too much for Royce though who responded, "We love Joey too, chanting for him ain't gonna get him outta jail."
