When it comes to flow, lyricism, and creativity no one does it better than Busta Rhymes. The Hip-Hop icon is a staple in the game. From his albums, style, and dope music videos his influence is everywhere. Moreover, during a Janet Jackson concert at Madison Square Garden, she brought out Busta as a surprise guest. The two legends performed their 1998 bop "What's It Gonna Be?" for the first time. Fans who attended caught the historic moment on video of the iconic pair performing their hit record during Janet Jackson's New York stop for her Together Again tour.

Not only that, both Busta and Janet Jackson received tons of love from the crowd as they danced and perform their classic collab. Later, after their performance, Busta Rhymes gave the "Control" singer her flowers with a literal grand bouquet. "We’re going to give you your flowers…. your botanical garden while you can smell them," he told the singer as someone gave her the bouquet. Not only that as Bus continued to shower the legendary singer with gifts and praise, he explained how their hit song came to be. "In 1998, 25 years ago, I’m on the Belt Parkway going from Long Island to Manhattan," Busta began.

Moreover, he told the crowd that when Angie Martinez asked the R&B icon who she wanted to work with and she said 'Busta Rhymes' he almost crashed his car. Furthermore, Busta noted, "To this day, our video is the most expensive Hip Hop video made in the history of Hip Hop culture." The legendary rhymer tied off his speech by wishing Janet Jackson a happy birthday (which is next week) and brought out a cake to commemorate the collaboration.
