Busta Rhymes "Trevor Tahiem Smith, Jr." has had enough with going back and forth to the courthouse and so he opted to do a settlement instead. On yesterday, after the rapper was expected to appear in court the following day before Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Emily Jane Goodman the rapper decided enough is enough and settled for Mevlin Smith's $100,000 judgment that was held against him.

The rapper was being charged for assaulting 37 year-old Smith along with Busta Rhymes' bodyguard Troy Green after asking for an autograph in a sandwich shop Gramercy Deli on Park Avenue in Manhattan in 2005.

Smith required several stitches to close a laceration over his eye.

According to reports Rhymes defaulted in the case on last year after not knowing that he received legal papers which were going to the home of the mother of his three children that he was required by court order to provide. Melvin Smith's process servers had mistakenly sent the documents to where his five cars were registered in Baldwin, LI which Busta Rhymes states he has no access to.

Busta Rhymes stated in the same affidavit he never assaulted Smith during the brief run-in at the sandwich shop.

The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
