Hip Hop News: Busta Rhymes Trial Set For November, The Game Ordered To Stand Trial

A New York judge today (Sept. 5) postponed rapper Busta Rhymes trial until November after the prosecutor and the defense lawyer said they were not ready to begin. Rhymes, who has rejected a plea deal that would have given him a year in jail, was ordered to appear in court Nov. 7 for hearings on charges of attacking two men, driving drunk and driving with a suspended license. He is accused of beating a fan and kicking a former employee last year, and also faces charges of driving with a suspended license and driving drunk. West Coast rapper the Game was ordered yesterday (Sept. 4) to stand trial on three felony charges after he allegedly pulled a gun during a pickup basketball game at an educational center in South Los Angeles. The rapper, whose real name is Jayceon Terrell Taylor, faces counts of making criminal threats, possession of a firearm in a school zone and exhibiting a firearm on the grounds of a facility for minors. A Superior Court commissioner ordered him arraigned on Sept. 25. Taylor remains free on $50,000 bail. If convicted, he could face more than five years in prison.
