Music / Busta Rhymes

Busta Rhymes (real name: Trevor Tahiem Smith, Jr., 1972-) is an American rapper. He is known for his distinctive style that combines rapid-fire delivery with a Reggae-influenced flow, gonzo humour and Large Ham tendencies.

Named after Vikings wide receiver George "Buster" Rhymes by Chuck D, Busta was born in the Red Hook area of New York to Jamaican parents. He was part of rap crew Leaders of the New School while still in high school; he first entered the hip-hop mainstream by appearing on A Tribe Called Quest's posse track "Scenario" from The Low End Theory (known these days as the verse that inspired Nicki Minaj's "dungeon dragon" hook).
