Busta Rhymes – Girlfriend Ft Tory Lanez & Vybz Kartel
Busta Rhymes is a legend in the game. While he doesn’t generally get the same level of props as many of the obvious GOAT contenders, the fact remains that Bus-A-Bus has been a mainstay in the game for nearly two decades. Plus, dude has worked with pretty much everybody, a boast which can now include talented new artists like Canadian rapper Tory Lanez. Now, after teasing the drop a few days back, Busta’s latest single “Girlfriend” has surfaced online.
The track is clearly a homage to Busta’s Jamaican roots; if the feature from dancehall icon Vybz Kartel didn’t give it away, then Busta’s cadence and patois usage should do the trick. Over a breezy and summer-inspired beat from Rockwilder, Busta showcases some of his oft-imitated flow, pulling it back in favor of a catchy melody. It’s definitely new musical territory from Busta, who seems to have gravitated toward the music of his heritage in his older years, not unlike the curious case of Snoop Lion.
