Watch Jay Z's Interview and Performance On Jimmy Kimmel Live
Jimmy Kimmel Live is broadcasting from Brooklyn Academy of Music this week, and last night's program featured a rather distinguished guest, Brooklyn's favorite son Jay Z. A proud moment for Brooklyn to say the least. In the interview, Jay talked about TIDAL, growing up in Brooklyn, rapping against Busta Rhymes in high school, life as a sports agent (his clients at Roc Nation Sports include Kevin Durant, Yoenis Cespedes, Victor Cruz, & Dez Bryant), and more.

O.T. Genasis' career has been launched quite successfully thanks to "CoCo," so now Busta Rhymes is putting his focus on another Conglomerate artist, J Doe.

J-Doe Feat. Busta Rhymes
With its opening drumroll, undeniably funky guitar licks, use of unique percussion instruments and, of course, those horns, OutKast's "SpottieOttieDopaliscious" is one of the duo's most iconic songs. Taken from 1998's Aquemini, the track has been the subject of several freestyles in the past, and now the latest comes from J-Doe and his Conglomerate boss Busta Rhymes.

M.O.P Feat. Busta Rhymes
Believe it or not, there was a time not so long ago when sampled Jay Z lyrics were some of the most prevalent hooks in the game. Around the time Hov released every acapella from his Black Album for free, his voice popped up on choruses from Cassidy, RZA, Common, Snoop Dogg and more, seeming like the most popular sound of an era.
OT Genasis "I'm in Love with the (Coco)" Trailer
Back in May, we posted a track by relatively unknown artist OT Genasis, who's affiliated with Busta Rhymes, that featured Rhymes, French Montana and Juicy J. His "Touchdown" remix attracted enough big names to get our attention, and now, Genasis is gearing up for a solo project. Today, he drops a trailer for the upcoming "I'm in Love with the (Coco)" video, set to be the first single. Clearly not talking about Crisp, Chanel or Pebbles, Genasis makes it immediately clear that this is primo coke rap, right down to him and his crew, who all wear white in this video.
Busta Rhymes Announces "Calm Down: The Clash" EP
Busta Rhymes found success with his latest Eminem-assisted single, "Calm Down", which was structured as something of a battle record. Shortly thereafter, the rapper released an alternative version of the song, which featured yet another ferocious verse from none other than himself.It looks as though he's compiling those tracks (and one more featuring Everlast, who coincidentally beefed with Em at one point), and making them into the Calm Down: The Clash EP.
Busta Rhymes Appears In Toyota Sienna Commercial
Busta Rhymes drops his first verse since "Calm Down" with Eminem in a brand new commercial for the 2015 Toyota Sienna. Busting rhymes alongside a suburban family, the emcee and his collaborators do their best to sell you on the fact that a Sienna is a "swagger wagon," a goal that may be out of reach considering the promo says very little about the actual vehicle.
