Busta Rhymes remembers losing out Grammy to Eminem: “He is one incredible motherf***er!”




In Does Rock ‘N’ Roll Kill Braincells?!, NME Magazine quizes artists on their own career to see how much they can remember. This week their guest is hip-hop’s juggernaut Busta Rhymes.

Interviewer: You were nominated for Best Rap Solo Performance at the 2000 Grammys for ‘Gimme Some More’. Who beat you?

Busta Rhymes: Damn man! I can not remember, you might have to help me with that one!

Interviewer: You lost out to your friend Eminem’s ‘My Name Is’.

Busta Rhymes: Eminem is one of my favorite MCs ever. We have done multiple records together and even on his latest album, ‘Music to Be Murdered By’, the track ‘Yah Yah’ used my vocals from ‘Woo Hah!! Got You All In Check’. He is one incredible motherf**ker! Wyclef Jean was the first person to play ‘My Name Is’ to me, before it was even out. We were on tour together and he had a six-song EP from Eminem. When we played ‘My Name Is’, I could not believe it. I went so crazy on his bus that I shattered his windshield with my head! I could not believe the s**t that Eminem was saying and Dr. Dre’s production was unbelievable – at the time, nothing existed like it in the whole game.
