radio station, when an associate of Rhymes struck Mays over the head with a

he does is run all round and try to act tough and then other people get hurt

in the midst of what he does," said Mays' partner Ray "Benzino"

Scott. "Supposedly Dave made a comment on Star's show [The Star & Bucwild

morning show on New York's Power 105.1]. Now mind you, the [New York] Post is

killing Busta Rhymes and for some reason he turns his attention on Dave Mays.

Dave Mays is the same one that put Busta Rhymes on the cover two or three times,

the same one that let Busta host The Source Awards. I mean, I guess at the end

of the day, after all them steroids, [Busta] wants to pick on somebody."

Chris Lighty,

CEO of Violator, which handles the careers of Busta Rhymes, 50 Cent, Eminem,

Missy Elliott, Young Buck, Tony Yayo and others, confirmed that an altercation

took place between Mays and his artist.

"There was

an altercation," Chris Lighty confirmed with AllHipHop.com. "The Dave

Mays thing, all I can say is those guys are worthless."

Sources told AllHipHop.com

that Mays will not press charges against Rhymes.

Both Rhymes and

Tony Yayo are the subject of an investigation involving the murder of Rhymes'

bodyguard, Israel Ramirez, who was gunned down in Brooklyn, New York, in February,

on the set of Rhymes' "Touch It (Remix)" video.

Authorities have

been stymied in their investigation due to lack of cooperation from key witnesses,

including Rhymes and Yayo, despite the shooting being witnessed by hundreds

of people.

Lighty did deny

an alleged incident reported in the New York Post that claimed Rhymes had assaulted

a gay fan who was seeking an autograph.

Reports said that

the rapper was leaving the 11th Street Diner in the South Beach district when

a fan allegedly congratulated the rapper on his success, prompting Rhymes to

reply: "I hate f*****g faggots, man'."

"That came

out of no where," Lighty told AllHipHop.com. "People are dramatizing

that situation."
