Busta Rhymes apparently wants to leave his issues with Charlamagne Tha God in the past.

On Monday, November 27, the New York native paid a visit to The Breakfast Club for the very first time. Not only did he sit down for an interview but he also co-hosted the show with DJ Envy and fellow guest host Claudia Jordan. During his time on the show, Busta addressed Charlamagne, who was absent after he missed his flight home from Abu Dhabi.

"I've waited a long time to sit up here with Charlamagne," Busta said. "I love Charlamagne, but I needed to sit down with him up here."

"You gon' pull your ass up, Charlamagne, and we gon' get into this building session," Busta continued. "I’ma make sure that we are both available when you get back so we can do our building session, Charlamagne…and you travel back safely, king."

For the unfamiliar, Busta Rhymes and Charlamagne had plenty of tension over the years following a verbal altercation they got into back in 2012. During an interview on Million Dollaz Worth of Game, the radio host told Gillie and Wallo that he and Busta almost got into a fight after Charlamagne gave the veteran rapper "Donkey of the Day" because of his "Otis" freestyle with the late DMX.

"I put Busta in the freezer ’cause Busta had did a freestyle over the ‘Otis’ beat,” Charlamagne explained. “And the crazy s**t is, the s**t is actually hard, but I was just being an a**hole. So it was Busta Rhymes and DMX — God bless the dead — on the ‘Otis’ beat, but I gave him ‘Donkey of the Day’ for no reason. It really was for no reason.”

It seems like Busta is ready to move on from their drama. Watch Busta Rhymes' entire interview on The Breakfast Club below.
