Power 105. 1 radio personality Charlamagne Tha God isn’t the quiet type when it comes to expressing his opinions. While it certainly serves as an entertaining outlet for listeners, the actual subjects don’t always accept his commentary.
Veteran rapper Busta Rhymes recently fell into the latter category. 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 fuck with these industry niggas…”
While Charlamagne later stated, “Light shit. Just words,” regarding the clash, the outspoken radio personality tweeted on Monday (July 2): “If you want to know what happen with Busta Rhymes and I tune into @breakfastclub tomorrow morning at 6AM…..@Power1051.”
News of Sunday’s quarrel soon got into the ears (or screens) of many fellow industry insiders including Charlamagne’s rival radio personality Funk Master Flex, who tweeted, “Smurf god got moved on by a new york city rapper!!!! Finger touching forehead!!!”
Notably, Charlamagne brought Harlem’s Lil Mama into tears, and made fun of Lil Kim’s current facial features directly to the Brooklyn rapper.—Jaeki Cho
