Cash Money Records’ Busta Rhymes and Power 105.1’s Charlamagne Tha God reportedly clashed over the weekend and now the animated New York City radio personality is preparing to tell all.
Keeping details on the low, Charlamagne promised to spill the beans on Tuesday’s “Breakfast Club” broadcast.
“If you want to know what happen with Busta Rhymes and I tune into @breakfastclubam tomorrow morning at 6AM…..@Power1051,” he tweeted July 2nd. (Charlmagne Tha God’s Twitter)
Reports claim the incident took place at a Sunday (July 1) night industry event in Los Angeles.
While under the same roof at last night’s Melanie Fiona-hosted party in Los Angeles (an after-party to the 2012 BET Awards), Busta and Charlamagne reportedly got into a heated exchange. According to reports, Busta Rhymes approached Charlamagne and asked about some negative comments that Wendy Williams had said about him several years ago. Interestingly enough, the remarks that Williams made about Busta were stated years before Charlamagne joined Wendy’s radio show in 2006. (Wendy Williams departed from radio altogether in 2009, to pursue her television talk show, The Wendy Williams Experience.) After the confrontation, Charlamagne immediately took to Twitter to express his disgruntled mind state, tweeting, “I don’t f*ck with these industry n*ggas…” (XXL Mag)
In addition to Busta, the New York City radio head recently got called out by rival station Hot 97’s Funkmaster Flex.
“Yo, you’re taking such a beating out here. All three of y’all are out here getting robbed,” Flex boasted on his Saturday night Hot 97 radio show. “Retweet that! Man, I can’t get that many records on, I’m so hyped. [plays ‘How 2 Rob’] Oh, you thought I was going to play games this week? That’s what you thought? That’s what you thought, right? You thought people were scared of y’all? Summer Jam is going to be what turned your lights off. Three robbery victims, New York. I want you to know that you are witnessing frauds. Okay? These frauds are on the radio and Twitter talking tough but they’re getting robbed, at finger point. I’m just telling you what they’re saying, man.” (Hot 97)
Funk Flex also placed extra emphasis on Charlamagne’s Southern upbringing.
“You ain’t got stamina like me, buddy,” Flex added. “None of y’all. None of y’all. Now why don’t you guys, Twinkle Toes, that’s what I’m gonna call y’all from now on. Toes. Twinkled. Why don’t you guys get jewelry and your money back? Stop getting toast to the face and stop getting robbed at finger point. … Get Diddy’s hardware out your mouth, because when he got you fired in Philly, you weren’t talking tough. And then when Diddy came to your show up here, you had his [Ciroc] hardware all in your mouth. Holding a Ciroc bottle. You know how crazy you looked? … Brutal today. I’m talking about you like this and your pops because I’m not scared of you, B. You are soft. You are baby bottom, doo doo soft, man. You don’t go to the borroughs, you sneak in and out like a baboon when you’re washing Carmelo Anthony and LaLa underwear. You run out to the laundromat, go back inside, shut up man. Out-of-town, fried chicken-eating, I bet you know all types of chicken, right? Lemon chicken. Soy chicken. One of those types of dudes, right? You’re soft. You’re cakes, man. Epic show tonight. The art of getting robbed. You guys are getting robbed.” (Hot 97)
