shits on niggas when he gets on a track with them...

killed more remixes than i care to mention...

the one knock youll hear, is that busta doesnt have a classic album....

I DISAGREE....

he dropped 3 4.5 mic albums in a row.... and id consider his second and third, to be must own, classic records...

^^^ 4.5 mics or better

crazy beats, dizzying flows, one of a kind style, classic videos to seal the deal...

and he dropped some clunkers...

but these 2 albums here...

are super underrated.....

dilla, dre, just blaze, dj scratch... and busta destroyed that shit, he got so many flows on that shit.... my god...

http://www.orderhiphop.com/images/busta_big_bang.jpg
the big bang has tracks that flat out suck... the timbo joint, the will.i.am joint... TRASH... but on the flip side, its got 10 cuts, that id rank as classic material... including one of the best collabos in recent memory, DONT GET CARRIED AWAY, with nas and bus flatlining a dre banger... niggas either love or hate this album, the mix on this album was incredible, DRE had his hands all over it... and bus gets flack for cuttin the dreads, and cutting down on the animated bussa bus... but listen what he does on the album, he destroyed these beats, whisper flows, scream flows, double time, triple time, introspective shit with STEVIE FUCKIN WONDER!!?!?!?!?!?!!? and then he bodied himself with the outro, LEGEND OF THE FALL OFFS... where dre used a shovel goin into dirt, as the beat measure.... WOW!!!!!!!!!!!

and BUSTA dropped a crew album... that was actually fuckin dope....

http://image.lyricspond.com/image/f/artist-flipmode-squad/album-the-imperial-album/cd-cover.jpg

bus catalog is ridiculous, nobody can imitate his style, and he can still hone in, and blow up the biggest rappers in the game, if his head is right... he hasnt dropped shit worth talking bout since the big bang, but his catalog is stacked as is... i wanna see him come really focused next go round... the casual fan, sees busta as the loud mouth, gibberish, clown nigga... the emcee niggas... KNOW... BUSTA is a GOD lyrically, one of the most technically dominant emcees ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

nobody destroyed a dilla beat like bussa bus...

WgEtUuEK-to

hi-tek banger that shoulda been on the album

cAyO30NGYXo
yall should know bout this...

he got some cringe worthy music... his last album, was a piece of shit... id rather take a turd out of a public restroom, and stuff it into a CD player, than listen to his last album... but i wont remember bus for that, ill remember him for this!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Busta is still one of my favourite artists regardless of his last album, dudes old shit had so much energy and crazyness to it.

Hopefully his new album goes back to that old raw, crazy energetic chaos.

bout time some one made a thread like this, no one ever seems to pay homage to Busta.

peace angry!

Busta is one of the greatest ever.

People can discuss his skills and sound till death, but an artist doesnt get a chance to release his music on major labels for over 20 years without releasing quality music through those years.

Who people have in their top 5 greatest ever list has to do with type of sound & character(s) they relate to/like. Take away that factor....then Busta should be in everybodys top 5 list.

Theres a lot of artists i dont like too/like lesser, but that doesnt mean i cant acknowledge the fact that they have made some type of quality music over a long period and should be respected for that.

angry!
02-13-2011, 07:47 AM
no doubt homie...

exactly why i made this thread!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

how many rappers you know of...

got 5 BANGING albums... plus put a crew on, and gave them top level production?!!??!?!?!

and hes one of the best live performers.. even still...

niggas love dilla now right... well busta rhymes is the first nigga, to actually DEMOLISH a dilla beat....

STILL SHINING is the first time, any emcee, actually destroyed, a dilla production...

busta rhymes is a huge part of the reason, dillas legend is what it is...

http://thediggersunion.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/02/dillagence.jpg
^^^FREE mixtape, bus dropped, that shits on a lot of retail albums, he killed these shits.. and it was probably the best tribute dilla got...

busta didnt just drop hot music...

his albums had a theme...
his videos were CRAZY...
the album artwork, was CRAZY...

they were PROJECTS, not a collection of songs, pressed for sale!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

even albums he dropped that were just AIIGHT... had crazy art, and classic videos... he just swung and missed, but ANARCHY had some joints!!!!!!!!!!!!

that first solo... bus killed easy mo bee beats, like a fuckin assassin...

the average fan doesnt know how intricate bus is with his shit, his schemes are next level, vocal tricks out the ass, his speed raps would dust the majority of the mid west, and niggas bit the shit out his whisper flows...

bus is an emcees emcee, niggas mad at chef, for puttin him on OB4CL 2... not knowing, chef looks up to bus, lyrically... i thought his verse on all about me was whatever, but i wasnt mad at the placement...

and bus got ghost, on SUPER STAR, he still got it!!!!!!!!!!!!

bus never gets blown up, and he could get on a track with anybody!!!!!!!

Busta has the ability to always be amped when it comes to music, every time i see that dude in interviews, youtube videos what ever, you can tell he actually loves making music.

I think that is what makes Busta, Busta!

you can tell he ain't only in this shit to make some paper, that dude has insane passion when he's making his music.

and yeah I have Dilla-Gence dope album.

I've never been able to understand how people can not like Busta, dude is HipHop.

yea busta is sorry. he can def. rap but he tries so hard to be mainstream wit his corny ass songs and albums. dillagence was his best shit since like the 90's. i did like that romans revenge remix he was on too, which shows he can rap when he wants to

I'm in complete agreement with the points angry! made in the OP.

Busta's first three LPs are classic and The Big Bang was thorough as fuck.

Lengend of the Fall Offs is incredible, if not slightly ironic.

Yeah, I don't really don't care for his choice of radio singles and crossovers since the E.L.E. era, but every one of his albums has a few bangers where vintage Busta shines through.

Bus & Dilla made magic when they linked up, simple and plain.

FUCKING MAGIC!

I've really enjoyed the recent guest verses Busta's dropped lately, Especially Superstar, the chemistry on that track was crazy.

He's gonna spaz all over that Worldwide Choppers feature too, he's not gonna come weak on a Tech N9ne track or he'll get eaten.

Busta is a legend in his own right.

style and mic presence is ridiculous. charismatic emceeing all over a track, first three albums are superior musical pieces. i had to grab everything i could from busta, LONS to Big Bang. BOMB was exactly what the title of the album implies, a bomb, that shit was a big let down but with the quality catalogue he got, it was a flash in my memory

hell yeah!!! busta is a true dope mc.

and you didnt even mention the leaders of the new school shit, angry. even though getting out of that group was the best thing to happen to him.

that callabo with eminem was great. i dont even think it made anybodys album, but still a fantastic team up.

and he ripped that song on ghostface's heat rock of an album "apollo kids". (but ghost ripped it slightly harder.lol)

busta is the man, even though he has a lot of bullshit club songs on his later albums.

and fuck all the dick-in-the-booty ass internet haters. wipe the cum off your fuckin mouth and chin, little bitches. fake ass wanna be hip hop fans.

02-13-2011, 04:51 PM
i'm not gonna lie and say he doesn't have alot of filler on his records, but between it all he has alot of great shit that would satisfy any lover of hip-hop. shut em down 2002 is enough to prove my point, stuck in the middle of a cd that you'll skip most songs on. but its a fucking classic track that its a shame most people ignored. when people on here don't recognize the heist and ask where that song is from i think its crazy

Also much love for his Dillagence mixtape. Gets tons of spins on the ipod.

Yeah Busta is a great emcee, but he definetly does not have a strong catalog.

The Big Bang was trash!!!!....

His first three albums were fucking dope though thats for sure, i get it's moderatly strong but defz not one of the strongest.


Jay-Z has a strong catalog.
Reasonable Doubt
In My Lifetime Vol 1.
Blueprint
Black Album
American Gangster.

that verse he spit on ghost album = CRAZY
verse on chefs album = CRAZY
verse on worldwide choppers with tech = CRAZY

Ok angry! lets get serious for a minuate.

Busta isn't a genius lyricist like Jay-Z is.

The thing that got Busta hot with the fans is his energy and flow on the mic and dude is known to have a mad live peformence too.....

but when it comes to lyricism and album quality Jay-Z blows him out the water......

Flow: Tied, Jay-Z had the best flow in the game from 96-01, but Busta has a crazy flow.
Lyrics: Jay Z hands fucking down........no one flips an entendre like Jay-Z, no one flips a metaphor like Jay-Z.
Content: Jay-Z had the versatality here.
Wordplay: 'i jack, i rob i son/aww man i'm jackie robison/except when i run base i dodge the pen'
Album Output: Jay-Z
Energy: Busta got unmatched energy on the mic i'll give him that.

Why don't you like Jay-Z? Cuz he made it big? Cuz he's too intelligent for you to understand?

jay-z greatness is enflated through genius PR....

if i had a pick of bustas first 3 albums...

or jays first 3 albums...

im goin with busta...

reasonable doubt might be the best album of the bunch, but vol.1 and 2. dont hold a candle to bustas 2nd and 3rd albums!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

he might be a sellout....but he dropped the greatest mainstream hip hop album of all time.....Jay-Z is what lil niggaz on the street wanna be.....he's the MJ of rap.

He made Blueprint while selling the album and staying hip hop at the same time.

You calling yourself a Jay-Z fan when you dissed him in the other thread bascially calling him a biter and a pussy...calling Reasonable Doubt a classic when you said he was a nobody when he dropped it.....

"jay-z greatness is enflated through genius PR...."

what is a genius PR?

Back to my main point......

Jay-Z is one of the few rappers that got the whole package. NaS can't spit a bragga rap with clever wordplay and such, he's just a poet. Jay can do both. Whether bragging or going deep into shit Jay can do it.

thats GENIUS PR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

jay-z tried making a bunch of autotune hits... failed miserably... so he dropped DOA...

and now he takes credit for killing autotune....

thats genius PR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

jay-z is a sellout, id say the biggest in all of urban music...

theres nothing jay wont do, to stay hot...

that doesnt mean im not a fan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

linking up with r kelly...

riding linkin parks dick for the nu metal crowd...

taking credit for making kanye hot when dame is the one that put kanye on....

jay will endorse skinny jeans and dye his hair pink 2marrow if itll keep him hot!!!!!!!!!!!!

youre just now forming your opinions on jay-z...

ive been tracking sean carter since he bit original flavor/camp lo records!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

im not even sayin busta rhymes is better than jay z...

youre the faggot who cant stop talking bout jay, cuz youre just now gettin into his catalog...

busta rhymes in 2011 >>>> jay-z

whens the last time jay z killed a record!?!?!?! i guess monster and so appalled off kanyes album...

It's fucking hilarious how you think Busta is killing shit in 2011 when he's doing songs with Chris Brown, Lil Wayne and Travis fucking Barker....


I felt so inspired by what my teacher said,
Said I'd either be dead or be a reefer head,
Now sure if thats how adults should speak ta kids,
Especially when the only thing I did was speak in class,
I teach his ass,
Even betters what my uncle did,
I pop my demo tape in start to beat my head,
Peaked out my eye, see if he was beating his,
He might as well say beat it kid, he’s on the list,
Its like Im searching for kicks like a sneaker head,
He gon keep pushing me until I reach the ledge,
And when I reach the ledge I'll tell em all to eat a d-ck,
Take a leap of faith and let my eagle wings spread,
Spread spread.

^this shit was off his last album....

Jay-Z signed NaS to the label....he won.
Jay-Z got the hottest dame in the game....he won.
Jay-Z killed Outkast on their own shit....he won
Jay-Z is the cleverest ever artist ever....
Rakim's favourite rapper is Jay-Z......

I've listened to Jay-Z since his 'Show and Prove' where he murdered the track.....to his Strech and Bobbito freestyle to his 'Blueprint 3' album, i've heard em all. Just didn't apperciate his shit cause i didn't look deep into it.

Now you can't tell me that Reasonable Doubt is a top 3 album of alll time, it blows any Busta Rhymes album off the water.......in 1998 Busta was doing songs with Ozzy Osbourne.....ha ha ha.......you talking like Busta is loyal to the underground shit when he's just a sell out as well......


Angry!, you are a smart dude right? Tell me a rapper that can fuck with Jay'z wordplay.
