Rapper Busta Rhymes was left with a nasty gash above his eye after slipping up during a surprise show in New York on Thursday night (27Nov14).

Rhymes was leaning over a barrier at the Webster Hall gig when he lost his footing and fell into the crowd.

When security staff dragged him back to safety, blood was pouring down his face and the rap star was hurried offstage for treatment.

The Break Ya Neck hitmaker never returned.
