Busta Rhymes was reportedly slapped with a $9,000 bill after rapping through the phone for the past three months. According to Page Six, Bus-A-Buss headed downtown in New York City, New York last week to deal with the issue, sending customer service reps into a frenzy trying to sort out the bill.

The veteran MC is currently finishing recording for his upcoming untitled album, formerly titled E.L.E. 2. So far for the project, the unsigned rapper has put in studio time with DJ Premier and DJ Scratch, though it’s currently unclear which cuts will make the final tracklist.
