Busta Rhymes Can Still Break Ya Neck With Raps In Only 41 Seconds… (Audio)
Life is too short to listen to bad music. So…let AFH fight through it for you and only supply you with that great stuff. Despite the reports, Hip-Hop is alive and well and, in many ways, is better than it’s ever been. Not only are we able to go back and listen to all of our favorites, at the click of a button, there is also a ton of great music still being made by artists, young and veteran alike…if you know where to look.
To help with that task, we’ve created two playlists. One features more recent music—songs that have been released within the last year or so—while the other is throwback, focused on the 1980s and ’90s. We update each of these playlists regularly, so, if you like what you hear, subscribe to follow us on Spotify.
Busta Rhymes makes his return to Rap this week as a featured guest on A$AP Ferg’s latest single, “East Coast Remix.” With fellow New Yorkers A$AP Rocky, Remy Ma, French Montana, and Dave East also in tow on the song’s original version, Ferg also invited Long Beach, California honorary mayor Snoop Dogg and Miami’s Rick Ross for what is now a coast to coast affair. Appearing on the A$AP Mob rapper’s August 18 LP, Still Striving, the nearly six-minute track may be chock full of big-body rappers, but its opening verse is the show stealer. Disaster strikes the minute Busta touches the mic:
“Lemme give em a friendly reminder real quick,” he says before launching into his lyrical tirade. “Y’all already know that the God gotta talk / every single time I come you ni**as know I gotta do it” he spits in the breathless, rapid-fire delivery that makes him such a unique personality in Rap music. As animated and aggressive as he’s been for decades, Busta is able to do more than a lot of other rappers could with the very short time he’s given on the track. “Only got 41 seconds, that doesn’t give a ni**a sh*t / Every second, b*tch I gotta use it,” he says. And use it, he does. By the time his verse is over, Heads will be hard pressed to be able to fully digest and decipher all that he’s said.
In addition to new Ferg, the playlist has been updated with highlights from Sean Price, Alchemist & Mobb Deep, Action Bronson, and Jay Rock. Together, these artists join Kendrick Lamar, Logic, Nas, Joey Bada$$, Evidence, J. Cole, Oddisee, XXXtentacion, Big Sean, Freddie Gibbs, Raekwon, Vic Mensa, David Banner, Tyler, The Creator, Meek Mill, Jidenna and a host of others.
