*Rapper Joe Budden missed his scheduled gig in New York Thursday night after he was reportedly arrested on an outstanding warrant, reports MTV.com.

The artist was due to perform with his group Slaughterhouse at Manhattan’s Best Buy Theatre, but was absent when the rest of the band took the stage.

Budden’s bandmates addressed his absence during the show, telling the crowd the rapper had been arrested on a warrant stemming from a 2007 traffic violation.

The audience responded by chanting Budden’s name, with Royce da 5’9″ later telling them, “We love Joey too, chanting for him ain’t gonna get him outta jail.”
