Busta Rhymes, a microphone maestro, acknowledges the presence of other rap artists with skills as awe-inspiring as his own. In an article published by SPIN on August 28, famous rappers divulged their favorite underrated rap talents. Among the artists mentioned, Busta’s choice stood out for its succinctness and conviction.
Busta Rhymes, in an exclusive conversation, unveiled his top pick for an underrated rapper. While his own rap prowess is widely recognized, Busta remains attuned to the talents of other MCs who possess equally intimidating skill levels.
The SPIN article, titled “Famous Rappers Disclose Their Picks for Unsung Rap Geniuses,” featured a variety of artists who shared their preferences in detail. Busta, however, needed just a few words to express his choice.
“Roc Marciano,” he declared, offering a name that resonates deeply within the hip-hop community. What sets Roc Marci apart, as Busta highlighted, is the distinctive fear that some artists experience when considering a collaboration with him.
Both Busta Rhymes and Roc Marciano have extensive roots in the vibrant NYC hip-hop scene. Roc Marci once belonged to Busta’s acclaimed collective, Flipmode Squad, during the late ’90s and early ’00s. This collaboration led to Roc Marci’s feature on Busta’s Anarchy album, a testament to their creative synergy.
