22. Joe Budden Misses Concert Because of $75 Parking Ticket
Date: March 30
Supergroup Slaughterhouse is comprised of four of the most lyrically gifted rappers in the game: Detroit's Royce da 5'9, Long Beach, California's Crooked I, Brooklyn's Joell Ortiz, and New Jersey's Joe Budden. Whenever the quartet makes an appearance in one of their hometowns, you know it's going to be a good show, and for Joe Budden, NYC's Best Buy Theatre was basically in his own backyard.
Slaughterhouse sold the place out, and the last thing that anyone would ever imagine would be Jumpoff Joe missing this event. But it was out of his control...sort of. A man who can remember thousands of rap lines from hundreds of songs, forgot to pay a parking ticket, and the cops made him pay for it. Not only did Joe Budden get the boot, but also a night of jail time.
