Busta Rhymes is crazy enough on his own. Put him with P. Diddy and it get ridiculous. At least that was the vibe on the set of the duo’s new video, “Pass the Courvoisier.”
Mr. T, Jamie Foxx, Rah Digga and Pharrell Williams of the Neptunes were among those that took part in the shoot, which will feature the adventures of a bottle of cognac as it’s passed through scenes inspired by several movies, including “Rush Hour 2,” “Harlem Night” and “Coyote Ugly.”
“We sit down and we B.S. each other about who’s hotter than who, but the camera loves both of us,” Busta said of his friendly rivalry with P. Diddy in an interview with MTV. “We both love the camera. At the end of the day, we’re both gonna pull a few tricks out of our bag and see who’s gonna shake a leg hotter than the other when it comes to this performance thing. We’ve got an understanding of how we vibe and that we’re pretty much gonna bombshell the whole situation.”
Much like Busta’s first video, “Break Ya Neck,” “Pass the Courvoisier” will feature a snippet from another track off Genesis. This time it’s “Betta Stay Up In Your House,” which explains Rah Digga’s appearance. Tougher to explain would have been how she lost her toes in a chainsaw accident on the set of a music video. “That was something crazy,” Rah Digga told MTV. “I actually dropped the chainsaw on my foot. The chainsaw was so heavy, I put it down, and it cut right through my boot. I thought I cut my toe off.”
“Pass the Courvoisier” is expected to be released within a few weeks.
