It seems Busta Rhymes came within a hair of beginning 2019 with fisticuffs.
According to TMZ, Busta Rhymes was in New York’s Times Square sitting in his car when a man and his wife walked by. The woman reportedly said hi to Busta, but it was the rapper’s retort that didn’t sit well with the woman’s husband.
Busta Rhymes allegedly invited the woman to hang out with him in his car.
The unidentified man reportedly had a few words for Busta Rhymes, which prompted the platinum-selling rapper to get out of his car.
Blurry footage of the encounter picks up with Busta Rhymes and the man face-to-face. Busta’s security intervened before things turned violent, however, the man can be heard yelling “F–k your New Years!”
Police arrived and questioned the man about the encounter, however, no arrests were made.
Busta Rhymes is no stranger to confrontation. In October 2017, TMZ reported him coming close to fighting a man in Miami. He also famously threw a protein shake at a gym employee.
Happy New Year, I guess?
