In addition to helping distribute his forthcoming free album, Year of the Dragon, Google Play have teamed up with Busta Rhymes to put together a mini-documentary entitled Life & Rhymes. In the 20-minute film, fans get an in-depth look at the evolution of one of hip-hop’s most unique emcees, from his early love for rap as a child and dubbing old school battles, to the star known for his double-time flow wowing crowds over today.
Commentary comes from Busta himself, as well as some of his closest collaborators including Q-Tip, Spliff Star, Sadat X, Phife Dawg and J-Doe. Additional footage comes from his performance at this year’s Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival. Happy viewing below, and do remember: Year of the Dragon drops August 21st.
