Busta Rhymes Speaks on Closing Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter IV

As of yesterday (August 24), Busta Rhymes was just like everyone else; he was eager to hear Tha Carter IV. Bus appears on the LP’s “Outro” rap cipher along with Nas, Bun B and Shyne.

“I didn’t hear it yet,” Busta told via phone from his tour bus as he cruised through the Nevada desert. “I was told recently that it was me, him, Shyne and Bun B. I was told they put me last on the record as well. I close out the entire album. Again, the blessings continue to manifest. I haven’t heard the record yet, but knowing Wayne, its put together in the absolutely most stellar way it could be put together.”

If you’ve heard the album leak that came out on Wednesday, you’ll know Bus’s last words are “Tunechi thanks for giving us a whole ‘nother classic with Tha Carter IV.”

“Wayne is probably my top two or top three favorite MCs in the game right now,” Bus said about his friend and fellow guest star on Chris Brown’s recent number one single, “Look At Me Now.” “Wayne is one of my biggest inspirations because Wayne’s got a unprecedented work ethic. Wayne’s consistency is unparalleled as well. I don’t really find moments that I feel disappointed in whatever Wayne is doing. I definitely feel [like] he’s an alien. He doesn’t do shit that seems humane, as far as his ability. That man is one of the gifts to the game. I’m a big, big, big Wayne fan. I love working with him every time.”

Busta went on to call Weezy very “easy,” to work with and a “class act of greatness.”
Tha Carter IV comes out officially, directly after the MTV Video Music Awards through such digital outlets as iTunes and Amazon. Physical CDs will then be in stores the following next day, Monday, August 29. —Shaheem Reid
