Busta Rhymes might want to “Break Ya Neck” if you tell him he has to wear a mask.

The iconic rapper makes it clear he’s an anti-masker in a resurfaced concert clip from June, which went viral on Twitter Tuesday.

Busta was performing at the Seoul Taco 10th anniversary block party in St. Louis when he began his tirade.

“This is my second show in front of human life in the last 15 f***ing months,” he said, expressing his frustration over lack of work during the pandemic.

“It’s called the God-given right of freedom, right?” Busta continued onstage. “No human being is supposed to tell you that you can’t even breathe freely. … Some of y’all might feel differently, but f*** your mask.”

Busta also told the crowd that the government is trying to “take our civil liberties away.”

“We can’t eat food with a f***ing mask on,” the 49-year-old added. “We can’t even see each other’s smiles with a mask on.”

The 12-time Grammy nominee closed out his set by apologizing for getting “a little political.”
