One of the most charismatic and animated MCs to ever emerge on the Hip Hop landscape, Busta Rhymes has been a fixture of the culture for over 30 years. Breaking into the game with The Leaders of the New School, Busta’s guest appearances on A Tribe Called Quest’s “Scenario” and Craig Mack’s “Flava In Ya Ear” remix set the stage for his hugely successful solo career that was launched with his debut LP, The Coming. He went on to create several platinum albums, such as When Disaster Strikes, Extinction Level Event, Genesis and several others. Throughout his career, he’s dropped classic singles and iconic, innovative music videos that were ahead of their time. Proving his continued relevance in the game, he dropped Extinction Level Event Part 2: The Wrath of God in 2020. With other-worldly lyrical skills rapped at amazing speeds and an unparalleled live show, Busta Rhymes remains one of the most renowned MCs of all time.
The group released two albums, A Future Without a Past in 1991 and T.I.M.E. in 1993, before disbanding.
Busta Rhymes is from Brooklyn, New York. In fact, he attended George Westinghouse High School along with The Notorious B.I.G. and JAY-Z.
Busta Rhymes has been nominated 12 times but has yet to win a Grammy Award.
His first rap name was Chilly-O-Ski, but Chuck D of Public Enemy renamed him Busta Rhymes after the former Minnesota Viking, George “Buster” Rhymes, when he saw him perform live.
Busta Rhymes made his film debut in 1993's Who’s The Man? The movie also starred Doctor Dré and Ed Lover, as well as Terrence Howard.
Busta Rhymes launched his own clothing line, Bushi, in 1999. The company’s name was derived from the Japanese word for warrior “bushido.” Busta designed all the clothing himself alongside partner Rasheed Booth.
