On the heels of Busta Rhymes receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2023 BET Awards, his “beautiful twin”—Missy Elliott—is giving him his well-deserved flowers online!
Missy Elliott Speaks On Busta Rhymes’ Heart Of Gold While Praising Him
The “Work It” rapper acknowledged Busta Rhymes in a recent Instagram post.
The upload consisted of a video, which featured Missy speaking on how Busta “brought timeless music, creativity, [and] visuals” throughout his career. However, she acknowledged, “Busta’s heart is always the thing that stood out.”
Continuing to laud his artistry, Missy announced that her “favorite Busta verse” is from “Touch It,” as she “hadn’t heard that kinda style from Busta.” We should add that Missy hopped on the track’s remix with artists like Mary J. Blige and DMX.
Missy Elliott also encouraged others to “give more flowers to Busta Rhymes.” However, she expressed that she doesn’t think there are “enough bouquets for all that [he has] done.”
“We should give more flowers to Busta Rhymes. I don’t think there’s enough bouquets for all that you have done.”
Wrapping up, Missy proclaimed, “I am honored to call you my brother. I love you—I love you with all my heart. Congratulations!”
