There are countless East Coast rap juggernauts from hip-hop's inception and in the present. The Notorious B.I.G, Cam'ron, Nas, the list goes on. However, a couple of other MCs in the space, 50 Cent and Busta Rhymes are legends in their own right. 50 has done so much for the gangsta rap subgenre with two of the biggest album releases, Get Rich or Die Tryin' and The Massacre.
As for Busta Rhymes, he has been a vital part of some massive songs such as "Don't Cha" by The Pussycat Dolls, "Look At Me Now" by Chis Brown, and more. On top of that, his speedy flows and witty bars make him a must-have for a feature or album release. So, it is no secret that both coming together for a collaboration effort would be a great move on their part and for the genre at large. As someone who was born in South Jamaica, Queens, New York, Waka Flocka has a lot of knowledge about the East Coast scene. That is why recently, he shared his thoughts on X, formerly Twitter, on who should join forces for new music.
