The altercation went down at approximately 5AM in NYC, according to TMZ. In the video you'll notice Busta Rhymes is being contained somewhat by some of his entourage and NYPD officers.
Busta and a contraction worker wearing a work vest engage one another in a yelling match before the veteran East Coast emcee throws a punch.
TMZ further reports,
"Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... one of the construction workers filed a harassment report around 10 PM later that night .... claiming Busta was the aggressive one before cops showed up and before action picks up in our video.
The man alleged Busta swung at him but made no contact, and told him "I will f*** you up" after saying hello to the rapper. The man said he felt threatened and dropped his phone because he was scared.
Our sources say cops didn't witness what the man alleged. We're told besides the harassment report, cops have washed their hands of this incident. There's no further investigation and the matter's considered closed."
