On Friday night, rapper Busta Rhymes accidentally busted something other than rhymes.
During a New York City show at Webster Hall featuring fellow rapper O.T. Genasis, Busta was very much living in the moment: He even lit up a cigar. But as the build of O.T. Genasis’s hit single “CoCo” rose to a climax and Busta started headbanging, he took a tumble forward and into the crowd.
While some people are calling this a stagedive, it is decidedly not. The centrifugal force of his chain, coupled with his passion for music, life, and cigars, might be to blame. Thankfully this clip has the slow-motion replay.
Busta sustained a gash to his head, but assured his fans everything was in check.
WE ALWAYS WILL BE ON 10!! WE JUST TOOK 1 STEP 2 FAR OFF THE STAGE AND THAT WAS IT!! SHIT HAPPENS BUT I LOVE IT CAUSE WE LIVE IT!!
