Rapper Busta Rhymes Stops Mid-Show Calls Out Fan For Touching Him
Rapper Busta Rhymes stopped mid-show to call out an audience member who kept trying to touch him, and a video of the exchange went viral online.
The woman kept reaching onto the stage to touch Rhymes, and he finally got tired of slapping her hand away, as seen in a video shared on TikTok. After she continued to reach toward him, Rhymes shouted, “stop the music,” and told her and the crowd to “back up.”
“Ayo, shorty, you’re with your man, right?” Rhymes asked the woman from the edge of the stage. The woman finally seemed to get the message as other performers joined Rhymes at the edge of the stage.
When she didn’t reply, Rhymes turned to the man he believed to be with her. “That’s your girl? What kinda s**t you on that you’re gonna let her continue to grab at me?” Rhymes asked the man, who looked confused, staring at the rapper.
“See, I’m a grown man. I’ll f–k your girl, bro. I don’t want to f–k your girl,” Rhymes told him as the crowd cheered him on. “Tame your girl,” he said to the man.
“This is a weird day, a weird time,” Rhymes continued. “She touched me and shit, y’all got them little funny ass camera phones [filming], and I don’t agree with that. She might do some police s–t. I’m not with it.” He finally told the man to “take your girl and tell her to stand behind you.”
People in the crowd moved the woman away from the stage as he finished with, “stand behind your man, sw=etheart.” People had mixed reactions to the incident, with many finding it amusing, while others thought Rhymes went too far.
Rhymes has a history of calling it the way he sees it. In August 2021, he told an audience that “COVID can suck a d**k.” He was also one of the first people to get physical with an audience member who attempted to stab comedian Dave Chapelle in May.
