Busta Rhymes's Miller Time
Busta Rhymes may be peddling Miller Lite in that funny new TV commercial, but it doesn't appear that the rapper actually drinks that watery crap. Below you'll find the page from his contract rider specifying the kind of suds and grub Busta (real name: Trevor Smith) requires in his dressing room. The rider, which was included in a contract for a performance a few months back, calls for a case each of Heineken and Guinness, while a third case can be either Red Stripe, Sierra Nevada, or Bass (none of Busta's preferred brands are produced by the Miller Brewing Company). As for those scratch outs on the document, some promoters decline to purchase alcohol--or condoms--for performers. But fried chicken and biscuits is rarely a problem. (1 page)
