Famous Quotes by Busta Rhymes
“Hip-hop reflects the truth, and the problem is that hip-hop exposes a lot of the negative truth that society tries to conceal. It’s a platform where we could offer information, but it’s also an escape.”
“You need to sweat yourself. Don’t sweat nobody else.”
“It’s kinda hard bein humble in the belly of the struggle,
Doin things that probably get you in trouble.”
“My craziest ideas come from cartoons. I approach music by taking that cartoon extreme and the real life extreme and finding somewhere in the middle. The animated element lures people in, but the real-life substance puts the nail in the coffin.”
