I believe in giving flowers and paying respects to our icons while they're still here. And with that said let me introduce you to Trevor George Smith Jr., better known by his stage name Busta Rhymes. He is one of the most successful, popular, and at the same time underrated Hip-Hop MCs of all time. His career has spanned three decades and he has released 5 platinum albums and 2 Gold albums. As MC he can get on any song with any MC and out shine or hold his own easliy with the likes of Jay-Z, NaS, Eminem, DMX, Methodman, Tribe Called Quest, and M.O.P.
His MC skills are so great that he can rap with intricate rhyming technique, rapping at high speed with heavy use of internal rhyme and half rhymes with the likes of Twista and Bone Thugs & Harmony. His diversity allows him too flow seamlessly with vocalist like Mariah Carey and Janet Jackson.
His live performances have been described as epic and untouchable. His innovative music videos have changed the game in the 90s. His reputation as an elite MC usually causes him to be the last MC on any colab because no one wants to follow his incredible verses.
His catalog of hit singles include "Woo Hah!! Got You All in Check", "Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See", "Dangerous", "Turn It Up (Remix)/Fire It Up", "Gimme Some More", "What's It Gonna Be?!", "Pass the Courvoisier, Part II", "I Know What You Want" and "Touch It", among several others.
