    Since Busta came out... even in Leaders I was like, ohh Charlie B, ok. Dinco D... wtf is he even talking about??? Busta Rhymes... who the HELL is this???? This dude is insane!!! Never looked back. T.I.M.E. while I was in college, I'm like yo his graduation in lyrics is whoa... then came home and he's solo and THEN that first E.L.E. was pure fire. I whammed that for MONTHS!!! This album deserved to be 11 years in the MAKING, not the waiting. This album didn't need us... he's BEEN rich, we need him to continue to be HipHop. He doesn't do it for the money. He loves HopHop the way I LIVE HipHop. Cat is easily in the top 10 best lyricists of all time!!! "HipHop is the only thing that provides jobs for people that don't even love the $hit...." ~ Busta Rhymes

    3:40 I can so relate to Bustah on this. I grew up during that time, but lived in and around the bay area thrash metal scene, and back then we didn't shy away from being informed and expressing the things we saw happening around us that were wrong. There's been too much complacency in recent years, too much focus on the money and glamour, not on people lives and the real stories of real people. Yea, I was a metal guitarist, but almost all of my metal head friends really respected the truths that rappers of the day let us all know about. I'm so stoked now that Bustah is back and hopefully more artists will get back to what's real. He has always set a great example for others to follow imo. Besides that as a guitarist and recording engineer, he's one of, if not my favorite rapper purely from a musical perspective as well.

    "We were keepin' it comin, keepin' it movin', keepin' it wild and we gettin' the paperless, keepin' cheddar, stackin' and pilin' and now we happy and smilin', 'cause now we livin' good." 😳 Okay. Sentiments like these from _Busta Rhymes_ would have been typical, but when lyrics like these come from the likes of _Trevor Noah,_ it makes you wonder if maybe he's thinking about changing careers.

    Damn.. It's good to see Busta Rhymes back at it. Unfortunately, I haven't heard much of the new album, and what I have, doesn't really sound like the Busta I remember. He's not the "Silly wit my nine milly" guy any more. I guess we all get older, fatter and slower but damn, he was known as one of the faster rappers back in the day, and his new stuff seems really slow, and he doesn't sound the same to me at all. Maybe I just haven't heard the right songs yet. Recommendations?

    I can't never know how it feels to be a Black in a White created System, on which Blacks are never iqual with Whites. I can only try tofeel empathy for my human brothers with a skin color different from my own. That's why Music plays such an important role, bringing everyone together to fight the monstrosity of racism. Its unthinkable for me to LOOK SOMEONE I THE EYE AND ONLY SEE COLOR. It's diminishing for me as a human, to do that to another human

    When i had the opportunity to Bodyguard Busta in 2009, I experienced a man who is very Humble and very Honorable to children, The moment he came out of the SUV and started walking on the Red Carpet he spoke and touched the hearts of each and every kid that was waiting to see him. The one thing i will never forget. A little boy ask him. how can i get a chain like yours. His reply= This right here does not mean a thing. Your EDJUCATION means everything to me, So work hard in school and get good grades to graduate and become successful. gave him a hug and a pound, That right there I knew I was going to have a good night and after we had Chicken and Waffles at 4AM with the rest of the crew..lol
