Fans are often known to push boundaries, but Busta Rhymes wasn’t having it with a woman who grabbed him. The Rap legend is a relatively unproblematic figure in Hip Hop, and he’s not the type to unleash on supporters. However, a video surfaced on showing an unfortunate encounter that reportedly occurred yesterday (February 13) while Bus was in Las Vegas.
According to reports, Busta was at the Las Vegas Convention Center for the MAGIC Fashion Trade Show. In the brief video, he can be seen making his way through a small crowd with his team flanking both sides. Then, a woman comes up behind him and quickly grabs his behind. The rapper swings around, looking visibly upset, and immediately throws his drink.

The woman looked as if she was smiling or laughing before the drink toss. However, her later reaction wasn’t caught on tape, but she reportedly spoke with The Shade Room about the altercation. She was identified as Nikita Mathis, owner of Platinum Plus Fashions Boutique. Additionally, Mathis insisted that she didn’t intend to touch Busta inappropriately and was only excited to see the Rap icon.
“I didn’t mean to touch his behind honestly I was just happy to meet him and wanted a pic,” she further said. “Been a long time fan I admit I shouldn’t have touch him at all but he’s BUSTA I felt like I could possibly get a pic.” Still, Mathis’s explanation was criticized by people who claimed she shouldn’t have touched the rapper at all.
