‘Orange Is The New Black’ Creator Once Wrote A Superhero Show For Busta Rhymes


Busta Rhymes was almost a superhero. According to Gawker, Jenji Kohan creator of Orange Is The New Black and Weeds once wrote a superhero pilot for the rapper. The bit of information was fond buried in a profile written on Kohan that was buried in The Hollywood Reporter.

This new piece of information brings about many questions of what type superhero would Busta be. What powers would he have? What villains would he fight off?

In the early 2000s Busta showcased his acting skills in such movies as Finding Forrester and the remake of Shaft. He is currently working his tenth studio album E.L.E. 2 (Extinction Level Event 2) the follow up to his 1998 LP E.L.E. (Extinction Level Event): The Final World Front.
