Busta Rhymes honoured by New York assembly for his contribution to rap music

Brooklyn legend Busta Rhymes has been honoured by the New York State Assembly for his outstanding contributions to hip-hop culture and his profound impact on New York City. During a September 25th ceremony, the assembly honoured him and decorated the lyricist with well-deserved accolades.

A product of 1990s New York hip-hop, the rapper is known for his tongue-twisting verses, lyrical skill and rapid-fire delivery that leaves his listeners speechless. With rhyme schemes that could blow your mind, Busta is undoubtedly one of rap’s finest lyricists.

Across his thirty-year career, Busta Rhymes has released ten solo studio albums three collaborative albums—two with Leaders of The New School and one with his Flipmode Squad.

The New York State Assembly has been honouring integral figures from the state as hip-hop celebrates its 50th anniversary and has highlighted those who have left an indelible mark on the culture.

Busta Rhymes has had an impressive 30-year career span, during which he has achieved a vast array of things, from number-one singles to platinum albums. As a figure from the streets of New York, Smith is one of many who have helped provide the blueprint for young African-Americans to succeed in the music business.

Busta Rhymes went to the same high school as The Notorious B.I.G. and even had a rap battle with Jay-Z in the lunch room. He has been an integral part of the culture for years and will continue to be as he prepares to release a new project.

Earlier this year, the rapper took to Instagram to announce the news but didn’t offer a title or release date yet. However, he did reveal that the album has several executive producers, including legends such as Swizz Beatz, Pharrell Williams, and Timbaland.
