    Busta Rhymes has left the Projekt Revolution tour, due to "complicated business matters."

    That really sucks. What a huge let down to the people who didn't get to see him on the tour. *shakes head*

    Hes been having problems with his record label and there have been rumors he was getting kicked off the label. There was no fight. He doesnt want more money.

    I saw this on a couple other forums

    "A guy at the show tonight said the venue told him that Busta apparently got into some sort of fight and was kicked off the tour. Can anyone verify this? Will it mean A Place For My Head instead of We Made It? Busta did not perform his set today and as far as we know, did not even go to the venue."

    "
    Details are still Sketchy over the full reasons over the departure of Busta Rhymes, but from the research myself ad Wilderness have done, we have been made aware that it was an Altercation with none other than Mike Shinoda. This would explain why it was so "Easy" to get rid of him, however, where does it leave the pair aside from this tour? Is this the last time we will ever hear the band talk about themselves and Busta in the Same breath? All valid points for discussion."

    "
    Rapper Busta Rhymes was originally on the tour until an altercation occurred which lead to him being kicked off tour."

    Could be just rumors.

    So Mike and Busta got into a fight? I don't believe that. Mike seems like too much of a nice guy to do something like that. But then again, we've only seen him in interviews/behind the scenes, what he's like in his private life can be a different story.

    I remember seeing somewhere in an interview that Mike gets a bit hardcore when he's pissed off but to be honest I think the whole fight rumours are bullshit.

    Besides if Mike was pissed off with Busta then he wouldn't have said he regrets Busta's departure and hopes to cross paths with him again on his blog.

    If there was a fight it's entirely possible that that's part of keeping it quiet, or maybe Mike just doesn't broadcast his grudges.

    But yeah, this is all if the rumours are true and it's not just because of label trouble.

    I think it's just a cover up but I'm probably wrong.

    I'm with you on that. Mike's a diplomatic guy, if there was some kind of behind-the-scenes drama that led to Busta getting kicked off the tour, he most likely wouldn't just blurt it out for all to see. Multiple staff members at recent shows have said he was kicked off the tour due to some kind of dispute/argument that happened after the Jones Beach show.

    Plus, Busta was the only artist on the tour who actually asked to be on the tour, rather than being invited. I'm sure he was being kept on a short leash.

    I dont think Mike would get into a fight with him. like "paul" said he is too much of a nice guy. we will just hve to wait to see what had really happened between busta and Shinoda.
