About this artist

Brooklyn emcee Busta Rhymes got his start with underground heroes Leaders of the New School, flipping his unusual flows on two albums with the group in the early '90s. He was also featured on a number of other records, including A Tribe Called Quest's hype posse cut "Scenario." Busta's first solo album The Coming (1996) featured his breakthrough single "Whoo Hah!! Got You all in Check." The song enjoyed massive airplay and made him a household name. Blessed with one of the most innovative and recognizable rhyme styles in the industry, the Flipmode Squad boss Busta released several more albums in the late '90s, spawning a slew of hits like "Dangerous" and "Gimme Some More." Busta even crossed over from starring in his wildly innovative music videos to film. In 2005, he signed with Dr. Dre's Aftermath Entertainment and released The Big Bang in 2006. When it failed to live up to expectations, he switched to Universal Motown for 2009's Back On My B.S.
