Busta still spits, but there was a magic about his early tracks that is unmatched by his current efforts. Let's throw it back to the early Busta Rhymes cuts that are classic.
Before Busta Rhymes was jacked, he was skinny.
Before he was bald, he had dreadlocks.
Busta Rhymes has released 9 studio albums over his prolific career, and his earlier work is regarded as some of the best from the late 90s era of hip-hop. Albums likeÂ The Coming, When Disaster Strikes, ELE: The Final World Front & AnarchyÂ helped to define the 90s hip-hop sound, and along with the help of one Hype Wililams, Busta Rhymes found his way in living rooms across America while TV stations like MTV and BET played his legendary music videos daily.
The true epitome of the audio/visual experience, these videos are still amongst the best you'll see. The VHS-like graininess amplifies that vintage feel, if the dreadlocks on Busta Rhymes wasn't enough nostalgia for you for one day. Let's take a look at 10 classic, early Busta Rhymes cuts.
