Busta Rhymes barred from his own film shoot

His presence is deemed too dangerous by NYPD

Busta Rhymes has been banned from participating in location scenes on a movie in which he is starring, according to AOL Music.

The New York Police Department ordered that Rhymes not take part in the location scenes for ‘Order of Redemption’, currently being filmed on location in New York City.

The rapper was last year involved in an incident during which his bodyguard Israel Ramirez was shot dead on location of a video shoot in Brooklyn. Rhymes, whose real name is Trevor Smith, has since refused to co-operate with police in the investigation into the murder. So far no arrests have been made.

The NYPD has cited public safety concerns as the reason for refusing to allow Rhymes to shoot on location.
