If you were at last years festival, you know that it was hosted and headlined by Q-Tip & Friends … well, those friends happened to include an incredible line up of talent, such as M.O.P., Busta, Kanye West, Black Thought, Kendrick Lamar, Homeboy Sandman and more. All of the performances were amazing, but there were a couple of moments when the crowd just lost it and everything seemed surreal, like we were a part of history (we were). One of those moments was when Busta Rhymes came onstage at the last moment in Q-Tip’s performance of ATCQ’s “Scenario”, right when his verse is supposed to come in, at “Yo Mr. Busta Rhymes, tell ’em what I did”. Bussa Buss came out with “I heard you rushed and rushed, on attack” on cue and it was pandemonium! Tip was up there doing all parts of the song himself, and Busta’s presence on the scene was kept unknown, so us in the audience figured he was just doing the whole song himself. We secretly lamented that Buss wasn’t on hand to at least do his incredible show stealing verse at the end of the song. So when he jumped onstage to our surprise, it raised the energy of the entire show.
The other moment of pure pandemonium was when Kanye West came out helping Kamal the Abstract with “Award Tour” before thrilling us with “Dark Fantasy” and “All of the Lights”. That was even more unexpected and after that everything seemed surreal.
What amazing “friends” will Busta bring out this year? We don’t know, but we will be there to witness history again, this time from our MCMI Booth. Come find us and say whattup! At any given time you may find GMS, LR Blitzkrieg, PH, PackFM or MrMecc at the booth, signing merch, interviewing people for our Blog and Radio Show or spittin’ freestyles and verses off of FMV4 & Know The Ledge. Mics and cameras will be on hand. You never know what may happen.
