New York radio personality Charlamagne Tha God has kept his word on revealing what really went down over the weekend with Busta Rhymes and downplayed all physical altercation hype.
According to Charlamagne, they simply had a brief face-off while out in Los Angeles this past weekend.
“If you want to talk about me saying your music’s wack in 2012, let’s talk about that,” Char explained. “So he goes, ‘You need to stop acting like a tough guy.’ He turned into the Ra-Ra Dungeon Dragon. ‘You need to stop acting like a tough guy. I said, ‘Bus, you need to stop acting like a tough guy before it gets crazy in here.’ And that’s when he told me ‘Put your drink down.’ Then I put my drink down, got all up in his face and as Angela [Yee] said, it looked like we were about to kiss. But it was nothing. Nobody touched anybody. I didn’t touch him. He didn’t touch me.” (“The Breakfast Club”)
Charlamagne then played an interview of Bussa Buss backing up his story.
“As a man, if there’s an issue, I’ma approach it and discuss it. And that’s it. I ain’t gonna be out here trying to hype things on these platforms and social networks and act like I’m something that I’m not. I ain’t no gangsta, I ain’t no tough guy, I’m just a man, and I live by certain morals and I live by certain principals and if those get compromised, violated or disrespected in any way, we’re going to have to have a discussion. It’s as simple as that. We had a discussion. I ain’t putting my hands on nobody out here. My kids need that bread. All the time. And I love my family more than everything.” (“The Breakfast Club”)
Yesterday, the animated Power 105.1 radio host promised to come clean on the dispute talk.
“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)
Initial reports claimed the incident took place at a Sunday (July 1) night music event in Hollywood.
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)
