At the BET Awards 2012 this past weekend, Power 105’s Charlamagne Tha God and Busta Rhymes engaged in an altercation. Earlier this morning on The Breakfast Club, the radio personality explained what went down, stating that their problems have allegedly deep roots.
Charlamagne said that Bus-A-Buss stepped to him over comments that were made about his music on The Wendy Williams show several years ago. But Charlamagne explained that he wasn’t even on the show then, and that he’d be glad to talk about the quality of his music now.
“If you want me to talk about your music being wack in 2012, let’s talk about that,” he said. “He goes, ‘You need to stop acting like a tough guy.’ I said, ‘Busta, you need to stop acting like a tough guy before it gets crazy in here.’ So he told me to put my drink down.”
The two came face-to-face, but tensions simmered and Charlamange left with Angela Yee. Busta gave an interview about the altercation, stating that there was a confrontation but that he felt he had to protect his honor.
“As a man, if there’s an issue, I’ll discuss it. And that’s it,” said Busta. “I’m not out here trying to hype things on these platforms and social networks and act like something that I’m not. I’m not no gangsta, I’m not no tough guy, I’m just a man, and I live by certain morals and I live by certain principals and if they get compromised, we’re going to have to have a discussion. It’s as simple as that.”
