It is no surprise that musicians run into each other frequently during festivals. This past weekend, The Lovers & Friends festival was packed with some of the industry's best performers from the '90s into modern-day music. Surprisingly, Busta Rhymes has had time to partake in the festivities from his busy performance schedule. Additionally, he received praise for his jewelry of choice.
This past weekend, Rapper Jim Jones ran into Busta Rhymes in a brief exchange. Jim noticed the size of Busta's gold Cuban link chain and praised him. In a video captured by HIPHOPDX, the friendly exchange was led with a handshake and exchange of words. Additionally, Jim notices the chain placing his hand on it with immediate praise. "That s*it look bigger than daytime," he said. Subsequently, Busta laughed it off. "That "s*it" look like it's growing," Jim added.

Moreover, Busta Rhyme's appearance at Lover's & Friends is only one of many recently. Earlier this week, he reunited with legendary singer Janet Jackson. The two performed their 1998 hit song “What’s It Gonna Be?” during the New York stop of her Together Again tour. Additionally, this performance is the first time they performed the song together during the 25-year span. Fans were able to capture the historic moment on social media. Following the performance, Busta took to Instagram to show appreciation to Janet.“Tonight was one for EVERY HISTORY BOOK!! FIRST TIME EVER THE WORLD GOT TO WITNESS THE BEAUTIFUL QUEEN @janetjackson & Myself perform ‘WHAT’S IT GONNA BE’ IN 25YRS SINCE THE CREATION OF THE SONG FROM THE ‘EXTINCTION LEVEL EVENT’ ALBUM At @thegarden,” he said. “Thank you Queen for having me tonight and being apart of this Dream Coming true.

Furthermore, Busta Rhymes remains one of the most sought-after legends in Hip- Hop. His reunion with Janet Jackson makes a permanent stamp in Hip-Hop history. He continuously includes his larger chains as a statement piece. Additionally, the music video for the song still remains one of the most expensive hip-hop videos in music history.
