Busta Rhymes Goes OFF On Essence Fest Crowd

The rapper popped out for a performance at Essence Fest on Friday, July 5.

Then, on Saturday, July 6, footage of the rapper’s set surfaced. However, instead of going viral for his rapping, Busta is going viral for going off on the crowd.

“Ayo, f**k those camera phones too, let’s get back to interacting as humans,” the rapper told the crowd. “Put those weird a** devices down! I ain’t from that era… F**k your phone!”

The rapper went on to speak directly to one “gentleman” who was on his device before letting the crowd know that he would call every person out for their behavior.

“Thirty-three years of doing this — I ain’t used to n****s sitting down… at my shows! I don’t give a f**k! All age groups, get your a** up now!” Busta continued.

The rapper ultimately explained to the crowd why “there would be zero tolerance” for “bull**** energy.”

Social media users reacted to Busta’s words for the crowd in The Shade Room’s comment section.
