Life and Rhymes

For more than two decades, Busta Rhymes has never stopped rapping and he's certainly never slowed down. The New York emcee has the unique distinction of not only being one of his genre's elder statesmen, but also its most energetic practitioner. From his playful beginnings with Public Enemy understudies Leaders of the New School to his solo reign as a tongue-twisting hitmaker, he's never operated with anything less than a fully turned-up manic virtuosity. He's never been outshined by another rapper, either—his status as the king of cameos has long been unimpeachable, having first burst out of A Tribe Called Quest's 1991 classic "Scenario" with a dragon's roar and still comfortably breathing fire alongside current day superstars like Chris Brown and Lil Wayne.
