The Breakfast Club‘s Charlamagne Tha God was involved in an altercation with Busta Rhymes at last weekend’s BET Awards.
The pair have been secretly feuding for years after Busta believed Charlamagne slammed his music several years ago during an appearance on The Wendy Williams Show. Harboring a grudge all this time, Busta finally approached Charlamagne at the award ceremony on Sunday night, but Charlamagne says he didn’t say anything negative about Busta’s music back then.
“If you want me to talk about your music being wack in 2012, letâ€™s talk about that,” Charlamagne explained on his Power 105.1 show this morning.
“He goes, â€˜You need to stop acting like a tough guy.â€™ I said, â€˜Busta, you need to stop acting like a tough guy before it gets crazy in here.â€™ So he told me to put my drink down.”
After tensions between the two simmered, Charlamagne left with his co-presenter Angela Yee.
Busta gave an interview this week confirming that there was a confrontation as he felt he had to protect his honour.
“As a man, if thereâ€™s an issue, Iâ€™ll discuss it. And thatâ€™s it,” Busta explained.
“Iâ€™m not out here trying to hype things on these platforms and social networks and act like something that Iâ€™m not. Iâ€™m not no gangsta, Iâ€™m not no tough guy, Iâ€™m just a man, and I live by certain morals and I live by certain principals and if they get compromised, weâ€™re going to have to have a discussion. Itâ€™s as simple as that.”
Was Busta right to confront Charlamagne?
