Performance: Busta Rhymes Doing A Live On-Air Medley Of His Hit Songs For Power 106 FM (Video)

E-Man was right in there with Bussa Buss, wasn’t he? So DOPE! This is why I love radio and small room performances (like NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert Series and the ALL CAPS, no cap RESPECT! event). See how all the big show energy is concentrated in the clip? Hip-Hop Fission… and the folks’ reaction as the experience this… NUCLEAR!

It makes it all the more awesome that Busta and Big Boy were obviously having big fun all the while!

(Shout to my baby brother Lyle for tagging me in on Facebook for this HEAT!)

ANoyd – “If I Ruled The World” (Freestyle)

BARZZZZ…to put wack rappers and mumblers under like ZZZZ. See Flex, they go heavy on the barz out West, too. Need proof? ANoyd gone give it to ’em!

Connecticut spitter ANOYD took a trip to the West Coast and pulled up on the Power 106 #LIFTOFF to drop some bars off with Justin Credible and DJ Sourmilk on #Freestyle042. Carrying a chip on his shoulder the rapper came as advertised and spit heat.

Over Nas and Lauryn Hill’s classic “If I Ruled The World” instrumental, ANoyd went off for a little more than 5-minutes dropping lines that were too sick and too fluid to talk about.
