I've only been getting into Busta Rhymes this past month or so, but I'm definitely digging what I see and hear thus far. I'm not gonna lie, the supreme awesomeness of his videos definitely helped fan the flame of my love for him. I'm tempted check him (and Big Boi and Talib Kweli!) out at the Rock the Bells tour this summer.
My Top 5 Favourite Busta Rhymes Songs:
I got into this song thanks to the phenomenal ACDC (Adam/Chu Dance Crew) video. I especially love that he says "Got niggas wonderin when I'm gonna bring the hook in" because I've always noticed that about Busta Rhymes songs - you can never tell when he's gonna let the hook drop. The video is awesome, with Busta playing King Kong, a newscaster, a James Brown-like character, a fireman, a "fly 80's fella" and himself in various brightly coloured parkas.
That's really just the immediate reaction to this song. One of those songs that, if you're not easily offended, is just a pleasure to listen to. With every "Hmm", my heart sings. Some choice one-liners: "See the police gon' jail ya/For walking around wit the kind of ass that'll kill ya now/Don't worry bout it I got money to bail ya/Shorty stacking like a mule, type of shit that'll scare ya" and "You need a - a chiropractor just to marry yo ass/To tell the truth you need a tractor just to carry yo ass".
