A.P confirmed that a Gulfstream IV jet was carrying 16 passengers when it left Teterboro Airport around 10.50am on Tuesday. The pilot soon realised what had happened and began circling the airport for about 30 minutes before the jet was diverted.
The flight was en route to Luton Airport in London, but the incident prompted an emergency landing due to these technical issues.
The plane was initially diverted in an effort to burn off fuel - something that would have made make it safer for a possible crash landing.
TMZ obtained audio of the pilots in conversation with the authorities, which can be listened to here.
The rapper recently played at MTV's VMA Awards with 21 Savage and Aerosmith.
