Busta Rhymes made his scheduled concert appearance at London’s Albert Hall Friday night after winning a court order that allowed him to stay in the country.

 

      The rapper, whose real name is Trevor George Smith Jr., was detained by British immigration upon his arrival at London City Airport on Thursday due to “unresolved legal issues” in the United States, according to promoters of the charity concert RockCorps.

 

      In March, a New York judge sentenced Rhymes to three years’ probation for assaulting his former driver and a fan.

 

       But High Court judge Nicholas Stadlen ultimately decided that Rhymes could stay in the country, saying he did not want to disappoint 4,000 young people who won their tickets by performing community work.
