Busta Rhymes fired verbal shots at President Donald J. Trump during his GRAMMYs performance with A Tribe Called Quest on Sunday.

While introducing the rap group's song "We the People" from their latest album, We Got It from Here ... Thank You 4 Your Service, Rhymes, 44, addressed the president's travel ban against seven Muslim-majority countries.

"I want to thank President Agent Orange for your unsuccessful attempt at the Muslim ban," Rhymes announced to cheers from the crowd.

Trump's controversial executive order, which also called for a suspension of the entire refugee resettlement program, was blocked in a unanimous ruling from a three-judge panel earlier this month.

A Tribe Called Quest's GRAMMY performance (which also included performances of "Movin Backwards" and "Award Tour") ended with the group chanting the word "resist."

Since forming in 1985, the iconic rap group has been nominated twice at the GRAMMY Awards for Best Rap Album.
